Pretty Good Romantic Comedy
8 June 2009 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This film is about relationships between men and women in an increasingly complex world. Foon and Ann decide to separate, as their marriage has lost its passion. Both of them are involved in relationships, Foon more like affectations, with the beautiful Cherie Chung and Elizabeth Lee. Foon's friends Q and Big Cheat have marriage problems also. Do you try to make the marriage work or do you drift apart? This film is not supposed to be profound but its watchable due to the likability of the main characters, played by Lawrence Cheng and Carol Cheng. Its a cut above many HK comedies at the time since its not slapstick, it has a pretty good story and its boring. If you're interested in this kind of film, check it out.
