Re-watching this comedy is advisable!
3 August 2005 | by yo_sammiSee all my reviews

The first time I watched this movie, I didn't think too much of the plot because I was looking for laughter during the Chinese New Years. Now that I have more time to watch it once again with my DVD and digest this movie. I found it is not only entertaining, it also provokes a lot of thoughts from me. First of all, I would like to comment on Alan's critic of this movie. He must be watching the mandarin version instead of the Hong Kong version. The fact that Sammi's character used a different name in China and H.K. tells us which version one is watching. The China version is a little bit different as compared to the H.K. version. The H.K. version is more slick, and fast pace. Yes, we do not know when Louis Koo's character is supposed to fall in love with Sammi or he just tried to help her to achieve the "hurt" feeling. Well, neither is the main character himself. That's the beauty of this movie, even the character itself do not know he fell in love with the kungfu master (Sammi), he thought he was helping to "hurt" the feeling, yet he subconsciously did something without himself realizing that he indeed has fallen in love. Isn't it that's what Love is all about.

i recommended this movie mainly because it is funny. Furthermore, the breath taking scenery of the Omai Mountain in Szechun, China is a gem. It sure worth the price of the DVD.
