This low-budget teenage film was the only fiction feature in 2004 that did not lose money on the Taiwanese market (it has grossed twice its production cost). Produced by two young, inexperienced women in their late twenties and shot by even younger Chen Yin-Jung, this sex comedy about a young gay circle in Tapei looks quite amateurish, but its refreshing tone was up to now quite unheard of in Taiwanese cinema.

As a Taiwanese, I am very proud of this production. I saw it when I was in Taiwan and loved it. A very funny comedy of a gay utopia in Taipei. No women can be seen in this movie. No aids. No difficulties of coming out. No one dying. Just a gay comedy. Makes everyone happy. I just got the DVD. watched it with my German friends and we all loved it. Sweet and loving. The two leading actors are actually straight. But they did a wonderful job.
Being gay and 17 can be a fabulous thing. And this movie is a great happy statement saying, "I am fag and fabulous!"
