A Waste Of 102 Minutes Of Film And My Time

The movie was one of the worst pieces of trash I have ever watched in the history of Taiwanese cinema. Not only was it degrading for women in the audience but as a man, I was embarrassed for my friends that I invited to watch it with me. I was ready to walk out of the cinema but my friends asked me to stay. I apologized to them many times over and insisted on treating them to lunch and dinner.
