Additional notes for this mini review (since it does not meet minimum length on IMDb) 1. Quite balanced and culturally fair, sorry no spoilers, no more elaboration. 2. Running time is not too long or short. 3. Did not spot any film goofs, even if there is, they are not too obvious. 4. Beautiful settings and props. 5. Those who understand Cantonese will find the whole movie more hilarious.
