A year later, she's engaged to the son of a rich woman who begrudgingly lets her son give his fiancée a family heirloom after she signs a pre-nup. The necklace is promptly stolen: Mrs. Do suspects her ex-husband and the wealthy mom suspects that the two ex's are still in federation and cahoots. In fact they do still love each other and spend a lot of energy trying to annoy or trick the other. Who does have the necklace, where is it, and why did the thieves separate in the first place? As time's bending sickle's compass comes, will the lovers sort things out? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

4/5 stars
27 December 2004 | by kkoo-1See all my reviews

It wasn't the "perfect" movie. Take it for face value. The plot was good, but not super deep like something you'd expect from Wu Jian Dao (Infernal Affairs1/2/3), et all. It was light hearted and meant to get a few good laughs and entertain you - isn't that the purpose of a movie? Basically it's two people who are kleptomaniacs (people who are obsessed with stealing anything). Andy & Sammi give stellar performances. I've seen their previous two pairings under Johnnie To - Needing You & Love on a Diet - both of which were wonderful movies. Their chemistry is like that of Gregory Peck & Audrey Hepburn. Just.. something about it when they're on the silver screen seems to bring everything together. Well, as I pointed out before the plot's easy to follow. Basically they break up after a heist because of problems w/ the "distribution of assets" or so they say. Two years later she (Sammi) is about to marry some rich boy, but there's this necklace. Andy comes back out of nowhere to steal and so begins a little race (with plenty of pretty clever jokes) to figure out where the necklace is - and then some more.

Enjoy it! Ended the movie with that nice-but-kinda-solemn feeling you got when you watched Roman Holiday. (haha) the box wasn't joking when they said it was a surprise twist :]

P.S. still a little confused about the ending though. =___=
