This film is a style over substance film. You get two beautiful stars in Shu Qi and Tien Hsin playing agents and Patrick Tam as a commercial director looking to woo Julia (Ms. Qi) for his new commercial and himself. This is a film you can't take too seriously, as there is some utter nonsense in it. However, it looks great, its a very vibrant film. The outdoor shots of Hong Kong are well filmed and the story is okay. The last twenty minutes are the best part of the film, up to then it somewhat meanders. If you want to see Shi Qi in a better film watch "Milennium Mambo", even if that film is decidedly not funny. Sandra Ng is in this, always welcome, but not for very long. So, if you like Shu Qi and/or Patrick Tam, check this out but don't expect profundity. They churn these films out in the U.S. all the time with an eye on the profit margin. If you're not a fan of three mentioned actors this is otherwise not essential viewing.
