When news anchor Michael Hui discovers he has cancer and only has three months to live, he decides to play it for all its worth on television for big ratings and lots of money, all the while convincing his family that it is all a big act. In a UFO production of a James Yuen script with Jacob Cheung directing and Michael Hui and Josephine Siao in top form, this is a can't miss movie. A perfect combination of intelligent humor, sappy drama, and social commentary.

Summary: NULL

TV anchor Yan Wai's (Michael Hui, who also directed) daughterneeds a dowry, his son suffers from love-sickness, his wife has spells, his toddler wants to know where babies come from, and now he has intestinal cancer? It's family comedy HK style, but at least it has down-to-earth humor and real characters. (And for once, no out-of-synch dialogue.)

(2/4)
