Storyline

Four friends are about to graduate from university and ostensibly journey on to the rest of their lives. But they are confused about their own futures and are not ready to enter real adulthood, which to them means work, family and responsibilities. Their classmate Lok is notorious within their university for trying to hit on girls by saying that he is a filmmaker. He is then expelled by the university right before graduation. The four friends decide to copy the idea and take it even further. They concoct an elaborate plan to hire a Japanese AV actress to "act" in their fake film, but of course this is only an excuse to have sex with her. Written by Making Film

Raunchy Hong Kong Comedy
9 August 2005 | by MQBlankSee all my reviews

Comedy is a difficult thing to translate in my opinion. Many jokes can be lost in the translation and also you may need to know the customs of the country being translated to fully understand the joke. There are 2 forms of comedy that do translate well and they are physical humour/slapstick and ones based on a universal theme. Thankfully, this film uses the oldest theme of all...SEX. Calling this a Hong Kong American Pie/Porky's is unfair, as I laughed at this film more than those 2 films put together. The story is about 4 HK guys making a fake porn film starring a Japanese AV girl (AV girl being equivalent to an American Porn star) so that they can all get laid. They have to raise HK$200,000 (around £14,400) to bring her over from Japan, setup the film shoot and crew just to do all this. Sure, they could probably just go to a prostitute and it would be a lot cheaper, but not many hookers would be as cute as real-life Japanese AV girl Amamiya Manami. The film is consistently funny with some very raunchy humour for a HK movie but it is handled reasonably tastefully with excellent performances from all of the leads. Interestingly, 2 of the leads are members of HK boy band 'Shine'. I could never see any members of boy bands from this country or the US being involved in a film of this sort starring with an actual porn star who acquits herself so well in the acting department (and hopefully we never will). Also, I can fully recommend the 2-Disc HK DVD, which includes a fully subtitled video commentary from the director and cast.
