Storyline

Compulsive disorders plague Hong Kong: Fong Fong Fong, a foundling who's now a nurse, is a shopaholic who seeks psychiatric help from Kan Yan (Choosey) Lee, who's frozen by an inability to choose. Into the mix come Kung Fu (Richie) Ho, a wealthy man who is stingy but also will buy anything someone else wants, and Ding Dong Ding, Lee's binge-eating bargain-shopping ex-girlfriend who reappears in hopes Lee will now choose her. Both men propose to both women who say yes to both. Family and friends are inept at helping to sort it out, and even if the four get the wedding vows straight, will anyone be cured? Does Hong Kong need more than a Prozac? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The studios' producer Charles Heung is the presenter for both films. See more »

Typical Hong Kong romantic comedy...
15 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I must admit that I was excited to watch "Jui oi nui yun kau muk kong" (aka "The Shopaholics") given the fact that Cecilia Cheung, Ching Wan Lau and Jordan Chan was in the movie. Their performances were good enough given the Little material that they had to work this. This movie was just a bit too much on the silly side. That Whole double wedding thing was just too stupid and it really threw the movie a low blow.

The three main talents Cheung, Ching Wan Lau and Jordan Chan really did have good on-screen chemistry together, and they were really well-cast for the movie. Just a shame that they were limited by the script.

The story was simple and easy to follow, but it was just too silly on a stupid level, which ultimately resulted in an overall mediocre movie, despite having a really impressive cast of Hong Kong talents.

Even as a longtime avid fan of the Hong Kong cinema, I just wasn't particularly impressed and just mildly entertained. "The Shopaholics" didn't really bring anything new or overly exciting to the romantic comedy genre that has been abundant in the Hong Kong cinema. It is worth a single viewing if you are a fan of the main cast. But chances are slim to none that you will watch it more than once.
