User Reviews

This is a good example of a Chow Yun Fat comedy
27 April 2000 | by tcboxerSee all my reviews

After movie greats like the Killer, and The Replacement Killers , many people feel that chow Yun Fat is only a "Action Star". Well this is one of the movies that proves them wrong. It's a delightful story of a wealthy man who falls in love with two women. The thing that makes Chow so great in a comedy is his wonderful facial expressions. The ending is so-so, but the movie is well worth watching, especially if you want to see the "many faces" of Chow Yun Fat
