Anita Yuen in her almost stereotypical role as a cute, spunky woman who's been kicked around by fate; Tony Leung Kar Fai as her best friend, who happens to be gay. Well, "happens to be" is somewhat of a misstatement, since it's his being gay that essentially drives the plot: Anita becomes pregnant after an affair with a married man whom she doesn't know is married, of course, because she's "not that kind of girl," as we Anita-pedestal-placers all know. Tony, being a sweetie, marries her rather than see her have an abortion or be forced to live with the shame of single motherhood. Er. Well, anyway, despite the movie's rather insensitive interpretation of gayness--apparently, in Hong Kong people are gay only if they've been cheated on by a woman that they love, and not by choice--the movie is pretty...cute. Anita is pretty AND cute. :) Tony is a fairly likable and not TOO stereotypical gay man.

An all-around nice guy Ah Gai (Tony Leung) marries an unwed pregnant Ah Yee (Anita Yuen) to avoid abortion after her boyfriend dumped her. The story and their relationship remains entertaining, until the villain boyfriend suddenly returns and wants his daughter back, and just as Gai falls for Yee (did I mention he was gay?). Great song by Dior Cheng.
