Richard Ma (Tony Leung) is a tight-fisted, mean and unpleasant character. He's also a wealthy businessman who has become increasingly bitter and mistrustful due to what he believes are the gold digging women in his life. Following a series of events one weekend, Richard's financial assets are temporarily frozen, his house is looted by his ex-girlfriend and he has no cash leaving him helpless and broke. It's during this faithful weekend that he meets Ah Choi (Shu Qi), a struggling financial analyst who is trying to ward off the attentions of an unwanted suitor. By offering his help to Ah Choi in return for financial gain, a most surprising relationship develops between this unlikely pair!
When you're rich, it's hard to find out if someone loves you for who you are or they're enamored with your status and wealth. Richard in this story tries to clear the difference.
Richard (Tony Leung) and Tom are friends and business associates. They are millionaires, but has hard time finding love. One day at a snake restaurant, they meet Choi (Shu Qi) and Chloroform, two girls who came to eat, but had to share the table. Later that night by coincidence, Richard and Tom meet Choi and Chloroform at a bar. They start to get acquainted with each other. Richard hides from Choi the fact that he's rich. He goes out of his way to make himself look ordinary, until Choi discovers Richard talking to Tom on a video talking about how Richard was pretending to be poorer than he is. Choi is furious, and decides to break up with Richard.
In the end, Richard's attempt to make himself poor didn't matter. He was showing Choi a very good time only a millionaire can. So it was natural that Choi would fall for Richard. If Richard didn't show Choi good time, it's doubtful that he would have succeeded in getting Choi. So it seems that Richard wasn't 100% successful in cutting himself off from the influence of his own money.
Wong Jin sticks to his lavish style where all the people who appears in his story looks like they're from high society. The story is as usual, geared to entertain, but this one, the focus was not so clear. Movie is of good quality, but the story is weak compared to other Wong Jin's movies.
