Summary: It kinda grows on you.
Although I see two other reviews disliking this movie, I actually thought it was a good, clean, light-hearted comedy with the basic Chinese love drama added into the mix. It's no Oscar winner to be sure, but it does have it's humourous elements.
It helps to be a Cecilia Cheung fan definitely, and this picture is not one of her better works, but it does have some merit. I find CC quite a talented comedic actress whose full range of abilities aren't even called upon in this movie unfortunately.
You have to be in the right frame of mind I suppose to like this film. There's no deep message about life in it, but just some simple characters who do a little growing up and who self-reflect on what's really important to them.
If you liked The Lion Roars, this movie rates about 1/2 as good as that film if that means anything to anyone. You have to give it a chance as the beginning is a little slow, but the middle and ending do pick up a bit. Just don't expect a masterpiece or anything and you should be okay.
It's more like a younger person's date flick rather than geared to the older crowd who is looking for deeper meaning and more intellectual comedy.
Just my op.

Summary: Honesty its honestly enjoyable!
How can you guys NOT like the nonsensical comedy by Wong Jing. He is a staple in contemporary Hong Kong comedies. He is a master in the field of nonsense comedy. Don't forget this is what it is, a comedy. Most enjoyable is the song and dance number in the end. Wong Jing can do it all! Drama, Comedy, etc. His return to cinema has been long overdue. Welcome back!

I watched the first 20 minutes of this film when the DVD first came out, and haven't been able to force myself to finish it since then. This movie is horrible! Lame story, terrible overacting, and an allaround smorgasbord of grimassing buffoonery that doesn't even resemble anything funny.
I liked the two leads in Fly Me To Polaris - what has become of them? When did Cecilia Cheung turn into an annoying stickfigure shrew?
Definitely NOT recommended.
