Storyline

Compulsive disorders plague Hong Kong: Fong Fong Fong, a foundling who's now a nurse, is a shopaholic who seeks psychiatric help from Kan Yan (Choosey) Lee, who's frozen by an inability to choose. Into the mix come Kung Fu (Richie) Ho, a wealthy man who is stingy but also will buy anything someone else wants, and Ding Dong Ding, Lee's binge-eating bargain-shopping ex-girlfriend who reappears in hopes Lee will now choose her. Both men propose to both women who say yes to both. Family and friends are inept at helping to sort it out, and even if the four get the wedding vows straight, will anyone be cured? Does Hong Kong need more than a Prozac? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The poster for the horror movie that Fong Fong and Choosey Lee watch has the logos for China Star Entertainment and One Hundred Years of Film Co. Ltd. Beside it is the poster for Election (2005) (Election). Johnnie To, director Ka-Fai Wai's frequent directing partner, directed that film, which was produced/presented by Dennis Law, and co-starred Tian-lin Wang (aka Wong Tin Lam), both of whom make an appearance in this film. The studios' producer Charles Heung is the presenter for both films. See more »

Silly movie!
16 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Such a silly movie! I've never seen anything quite like it. I don't know much about these Cantonese films, but I think it was funny because of how outrageous it is (of course I'm assuming not all Cantonese films are ridiculously incredible like this one). So as long as it's good enough for some laughs it isn't all bad.

I actually saw it on the way back to America from a trip to China on the airplane. I woke quite a few people up laughing at the wedding sequence. It's so stupid I couldn't stop laughing, ha ha. Although the names are outrageously strange, it is actually what attracted me to the movie in the first place. Ding Dong Dong? Fong Fong Fong? It's certainly lacking substance but I love it for the laughs.
