Director Vincent Kok had wanted to use Jackie Chan's office as the set for C.N.'s apartment, but this proved to be impractical, particularly as that section of the office is on the third floor. However, many props from Chan's office were used, including his own training dummy. Chan said of his character, C.N., that he was "sixty to seventy percent Jackie Chan". The clothing the character wears, the training routine he undergoes, and healthy lifestyle he maintains, his general good nature, and his environmental role are all traits and actions of Jackie.

This is a Jackie Chan movie with a difference, it is also a romantic film. The same Jackie trademarks are exhibited, the action scenes and the humour, but the romantic angle is fuller than in his other films. The storyline is based on an old concept, a message in a bottle, but updated. The characters are well chosen and believable. The action scenes are up to Jackies usual standard with plenty of humour mixed in. I really enjoyed this movie as it caters for all the included genres equally. For those who enjoy purely action films stick to Bruce Lee or John Woo. It was not the best romantic comedy I have ever seen, but this is one of the best films that span several genres in equal amounts. Awarded an 8 but perhaps should have been a 9 for its successful mix of styles.
