Proving the Adage that a Good Man Is Hard to Find
15 June 2019 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This film begins with an attractive and extremely wealthy woman named "Katrina" (Sammi Cheng) walking into the corporation she manages and finding her fiancé by the name of "Qin Feng" (Terence Yin) having a clandestine affair with one of her employees. Needless to say, this infuriates her to the point that she decides to give up on men entirely and focus instead on having a baby through artificial insemination. So after discussing the matter with her personal assistant "Vivian" (Joyce Wenjuan Feng) they set out to find the right person to make this happen. However, just when they encounter difficulties finding a suitable man, Katrina is saved during a violent attack from another one of her employees by a delivery man named "Xiao Bo" (Hsiao-Chuan Chang). And it's then that Katrina decides to add him to her list of potential sperm donors. But in order to keep everything secret both Vivian and Katrina decide to offer him a job as chauffeur and bodyguard until just the right moment. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that, even though this clearly wasn't a great romantic-comedy by any means, there was enough romance and humor to keep things interesting for the most part. Likewise, while I liked the performances of both Sammi Cheng and Hsiao-Chuan Chang, I have to say that I especially enjoyed the scenes involving Joyce Wenjuan Feng which I thought were simply hilarious. That being said, viewers interested in a cute film of this type might find this one to be worth a look and I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
