A Mess, But A Beautiful Mess
8 February 2009 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This is an HK film about three losers in love who meet on the roof of a building when one threatens to jump. The always dependable Eric Tsang plays a radio dj who schools these guys on how to pick up girls. And, what girls! Ellen Chan, Chingmy Yau, Maggie Cheung and Elizabeth Lee. Wow! All four are beautiful. Sandra Ng is in this too, playing Eric's doormat of a wife. I love her work, but not her character. Still, at one point you see her all dressed up and she looks terrific. The jokes are crude, coarse and more then vaguely politically incorrect even for that time. The film is also a dizzying slapstick comedy, sometimes not coming up for air. I am giving it a pass due to the stunning ladies, but I would have liked to see everyone act a little more mature. Then again, it is an HK film, so I knew what I was looking to when I put it on.
