In Vietnam it soon became one of the most highest grossing movies ever. The local Vietnamese audience found the film to be socially relevant in its bleak, yet comedic, depiction of relationships in modern day Saigon. Meanwhile in the USA audience often complained that the movie was just "another sleazy movie that the Vietnamese made". It has become an in office boom due to the movie have too many special effect.

The ending of the film throws a huge curve ball at you to its benefit. Up until that point, it's a rather standard romantic comedy film aimed at a male audience. You have some of Vietnam's most beautiful actresses in sensual scenes as well as a sympathetic tone towards the male "playa."
What changes this film from average to great is the ending. Just when you were expecting some cliché happy ending to take place, the plot shifts towards a feminist perspective through one of the female leads.
Big twists are not common in this genre but the film uses it effectively to be memorable.
