OK to overlook.
23 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a romance comedy starring Carol 'Do Do' Cheng as a rich widow who returns to Hong Kong to find her a suitable man to father a child with. She contacts a lawyer, whom happens to be investigated by her former love, a private detective (Chow Yun-Fat).

The comedy in this movie is really average and the two stars didn't seem to shine on screen much, versus other movies where the two definitely had great chemistry together. The romance side of things seem artificial and the plot is rather slow and dull.

It's nice seeing Chow Yun Fat and Carol Cheng star in a movie together, and there are a few laughable moments. However, overall, it's OK to overlook this one.

Grade D+
