Wong Jing recycles an 80s script... with pseudo models!
28 January 2012 | by sccovertonSee all my reviews

Wong Jing, Eric Tsang and three other cronies, on the occasion of their teacher Master Jude's 80th birthday celebrations, encounter five beautiful, buxom girls (Chrissie Chau, Carol Yeung and three other pseudo models) and fall in lust... sorry, "love". What follows is a tangled web of deception as the men try to keep their trysts secret from their wives, but are the wives actually in on it all? I'm not entirely sure who in the Hong Kong cinema-going market these films are aimed at, being at once rather puerile and shallow, but populated by actors from a previous generation, and at once filled with scantily-clad bikini models, yet essentially being romantic comedies. Still, they do exist and are pretty much all that's left of a once very special local industry.

What struck me whilst watching this film was its similarity to a 1988 Wong Jing film, also starring himself and Eric Tsang and their friends and focusing on their attempts to win over five young, beautiful girls by following the dubious advice of a "love expert". Perhaps Wong Jing is recycling his scripts.

Anyway, whether or not you get the in-jokes (or can have a Hong Konger explain them to you) it is a rather shallow, silly film, but for the most part it's good clean fun and doesn't take itself too seriously.
