Above Average Romance Film
23 June 2004 | by goodmenSee all my reviews

This film really exceed at this genres, a comedy romantic film. The start with Louis Koo and Gigi Leung relationship going near the end of their relationship, they went to a calm period to see can they get back. A Louis Koo problem is he doesn't understand romantics, thus he hire Charlene Choi to recognize his weakness. Along the way, we learn about his previous love relationship that went sour (all those girls are hot), meanwhile Gigi Leung met a few guys (along them Donnie Yen) along the way.

This movie is overall hilarious, yet some scene made you feel sad. That what make this movie sooo good, I had a few laugh out loud moment (Charlene Choi dress has a man, was a memorable scene). The best part about those scenes is the music, one of the best I had heard. The acting by Louis Koo was amazing, especially at the end when he cried, look very realistic. One of the best Louis Koo romantic films I had scene, you can tell he is getting better has an actor. I have to admit I learn something about romance from this film too, thus it also educational. Also the camera angle and visual was very nicely done, prop to the director. The only thing bad about this film is Gigi Leung use those annoying cried too much near the end.

Dante Lam Chiu-Yin and Chan Hing-Kai reteam with Louis Koo (before they film Naked Ambition which I heard was pretty good too). Also the trailer was very good too, they didn't reveal that much scene yet make you want to see more. Great visual, Great sound, great storytelling from Louis Koo and great education on romance make this a highly recommended film from me.
