Charming feel good comedy.
22 October 2000 | by yangshouwenSee all my reviews

Another success for the guys at Milkyway. Further testament that Hong Kong still produces great films which needn't involve gangsters and crime, and violence, but can produce quirky little gems like this. Although Andy Lau changes very little from role to role, playing himself mainly, he is likeable, and when you see the "moment of romance" joke you'll realise that Hong Kong can produce subtle comedies which surprise and make you smile without over sentiment.Yep, Andy is willing to make a fool of himself, and that is the joy of him in this film, he has little to say but you see his tranformation and realisation. Sammi, she's likeable but seldom talks maturely, and is more childish in delivery of her lines, but I would think that was the intentions, to make her seem cute, and she is. Yes I like this film, although less of a languishing film by Johnnie To, like "THe Mission", it proves that as long as there is talent like of the same ilk as Johnnie and his merry band, Hong Kong can look a lot more rosy for it. If you like Ally McBeal, you'll like this.
