This movie is above average compared to other films of the genre. The two leads went on to become huge stars in Asia, and this movie shows why. They are both witty, and they make you care about what happens to their characters. The references can be a little dated, but what film reference isn't dated in ever-changing Hong Kong?
This movie is about a newlywed couple who tries to make it on their own after they eloped, much to Sandra Ng's father's chagrin. Sandra works hard for minimum wage to pave way for Stephen Chow to climb up the social ladder.
As Stephen gets promoted, a rift develops in their relationship due to a misunderstanding - surprise, surprise. The ending is predictable but it does not sell out.
