Summary: cute film but lacking in delivery
This movie chronicles the life of a typical yuppie couple, Charcoal (Lau Ching-Wan) and Veronica (Ron for short)(Anita Yuen). Anita's goal in life is to have a baby, which certainly is not Charcoal's goal. Anita's best friend Ada (Lai Mei-Han) and her husband (Dayo Wong) are having a baby at the same time. However, Dayo surprisingly is a womanizer which leads to problems between the couple. In addition, Charcoal's ex-fiance Joyce (Annabelle Hui) is always around the corner.
I'm not sure how to classify this Lunar New Year flick. It isn't really all that funny, and there really isn't anything dramatic or surprising in the movie to call it a drama. I guess it could be called a somewhat romantic movie. Watchable movie but I expected a better movie.

Anita Yuen and Ching Wan were so likable in the Love Story-ish tear-jerker C'est La Vie Mon Cheri that they're back again. It starts off as an edgy, minutely observed comedy-drama about a woman who wants marriage and babies and a guy who just wants the woman, but the movie turns ordinary all of a sudden -- not unlike their previous film.
Reviewer Score: 6
