Storyline

This story is a description of how modern people search for their happiness and self-worth in Taipei City. In order to make a living, a man and a woman applied for a job as Call Man and Call Girl in the same day coincidentally, and they also sat out with the same taxi in that day. More spontaneously, due to various factors, both of them always fail to get clients which produced a lot of funny accidents. Finally, these pitiful and ridiculous "chicken and duck" have an opportunity to break the shackles on their body toward the well-being reality. The film's unique humor in trying to approach the interpretation of the most true humanity. Written by hooraychining

Light, but entertaining!
26 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Two people are forced by circumstance, into prostitution. A sad, broke middle-aged man whose wife is dying, and a lovely, youthful divorcée whose child was taken from her. The man is quite a shy bumbler as he pursues his new trade, but is quite a likable sort. The pretty young woman, played with great sympathy by Bai Ling, is more pragmatic in her approach. However, she gets some really unexpected clients. Chao-Jung Chen, as the middle-aged man also gives a strong performance. Most of the others tend to play for comedy. The two pimps - apparently man and wife - are quite silly, especially the funny wife. This was a very entertaining film, silly at times and heartrending at other times, but most certainly unpredictable.
