Summary: NULL

Hard-working Tung-Tung (Chingmy Yau, playing the plain girlnext door -- hah!) is in love from afar with debonair business mogul Mr. Wong (Tony Leung). As the male world steadfastly ignores one of the sexiest women in creation, she suddenly finds herself as the personal assistant to his girlfriend, who happens to be an old school-pal. Meanwhile, at home, her gruff-but-lovable dad (Roy Chiao) is suffering from Alzheimer's (reprising his award-winning role from Summer Snow, perhaps in hopes of yet another); her dog Man Man makes fewer demands as it rides in the basket of her bike. Well, one day, Wong gets a blood-clot, loses his company to his mom and sleazy younger brother, and, aw shucks, all he has left in the world is Chingmy Yau. It has a happy ending, but the excruciating twists it takes getting there is liable to bring on a good deal of shifting in your seat.

For me it was just a run of the mill Hong Kong romantic comedy that lacked heart and emotion.. Well, the brother, played by Eric Gott was pretty wacky, to the point of been very annoying .. Neither Tony Leung nor Yau Suk Ching's characters were very likeable, and not up to par, especially with Tony Leung with of their previous works.
