"Marriage With a Fool" (aka "Duk ga si oi") is a very generic and predictable romantic comedy. It offers absolutely nothing new or overly exciting to the romantic comedy genre. As such, then there is very little to lure in the audience here as in terms of why to pick this movie in comparison to other movies of the genre.
The story is about newly married couple Wah (played by Lik-Sun Fong) and Bo (played by Stephy Tang), whose relationship is tested and ultimately torn apart by some SMS Wah received from a former friend of his named Josephine (played by Pace Wu).
Storywise then "Marriage With a Fool" doesn't really prove overly interesting or exciting. However, it is still watchable, although it being generic and predictable to the core.
What makes the movie worth watching is the acting performances by Lik-Sun Fong and Stephy Tang. But that is hardly enough to make one pick "Marriage With a Fool" over so many other movies in the romantic comedy genre. And actually there are also far better choices to pick from in the Hong Kong niché of the romantic comedy genre.
You know exactly how the movie will turn out and end from the very beginning. Yes, it is that predictable. However, I will say that I enjoy the little twist to the ending that director Patrick Kong threw in. I liked that.
"Marriage With a Fool" scores a very mediocre five out of ten stars rating from me.
