It made me laugh, i liked it!
27 June 2012 | by Hunky StudSee all my reviews

It is not a serious, thought provoking film, that is for sure. It is a plain simple comedy. So if you don't set your expectation too high, then you will surely enjoy it.

I am rating it a 7.

Jacky cheung is a comedian genius. It was particularly funny when he was pretending to sing a song of his own as the character in the film. I didn't know about this song until I saw this film. I liked that song instantly. They could have used him to sing a few more songs in the film, after all, he is a famous singer.

The storyline is not too bad, either.
