That being said, "Marriage With a Liar" (aka "Fun chin see oi") was not actually a bad movie. It was entertaining enough for what it turned out to be, and it definitely is a movie you can watch once. But that is also about it, because the script and storyline cannot support more than a single viewing. It just doesn't have the contents for it.
The storyline was straight forward, but it was a bit too much on the lacking realism aspects of the scale, and that made the movie appear a bit less interesting. I mean, what are the chances of two people about to get married having an affair each, and both the lovers draw a heart in the palm of the to-be-married person? Nah, I wasn't buying that.
However, I will say that the acting in the movie was good, and I was especially impressed with the performance of Charmaine Fong (playing Mon), because she really carried the majority of the movie with her performance, even though she wasn't one of the two leading cast.
Overall, then "Marriage With a Liar" was a bit too generic. And while it was watchable, it was not an impressive movie experience in the Hong Kong cinema. I am rating it a very mediocre five out of ten stars. For me, "Marriage With a Liar" came and went without a lasting impression. In fact, I hadn't even heard about the movie prior to now in 2020, when I had the chance to sit down and watch it.
