I just didn't find it funny!
30 September 2006 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Her Fatal Ways is a highly successful 90s Asian comedy (the popular film has since spawned several sequels) with an award-winning performance from leading lady, Do Do Cheng, as Sister Cheng, an ultra-patriotic mainland Chinese security officer who is given the job of escorting a prisoner to Hong Kong. When the prisoner escapes, she sets out to recapture him, aided by her assistant and the HK police force.

Much of the movie's humour is derived from the clash of cultures, with Cheng's socialist character constantly at odds with her capitalist surroundings. Whilst Asian audiences may have found this side-splittingly funny, I didn't find it the least bit amusing; something was definitely lost in translation. And with only a little fight action sprinkled sparingly into the 100 minutes running time, I found myself rather bored by this distinctly Chinese comedy.

If you fully understand and appreciate the Chinese sense of humour, then maybe you will get more fun from this than I did. However, if, like me, you often struggle to get the joke, then you may be better off giving this a miss.
