An unromantic comedy.
13 February 2016 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is a romantic comedy starring Lawrence Cheng and Carol Cheng as couple Leung Foon and Ann, both corporate executives whose busy work lives have placed a strain on their marriage. After their separation, Leung Foon tries to woo a former girlfriend and gets a little too close to his female boss.

It is nice to see a bunch of respected actors in the movie, especially that of Cherie Chung, whom I thought looked elegant, eloquent and classy in the movie as Leung's boss. Lawrence was OK as Leung, while Carol was too haughty in the movie. Leung's two colleague friends in the movie, Pierre and Q Tai Long (Peter Lai and Manfred Wong), weren't bad. Chow Mei-Fung as Mrs. Q acted like a b&tch to her husband.

It's a very slow-moving movie with awkward chemistry and few laughs. There's some entertaining misadventures to see, but overall, it's a very average film.

Grade C-
