This movie is fairly long and dull. However, it does have the redeeming feature of featuring Leslie Cheung playing George from the American TV sitcom Seinfeld. Other than that, it is not much to write home about.

Tony Leung Kar-Fai and Leslie Cheung play two losers. Tony is an almost likeable wannabe musician who works at a nursing home while Leslie is a schmuck, who screws pretty much everyone around him. It was kind of funny to see Leslie play a character who worked against his usual dramatic star image but that only goes so far. The plot, such as it is, revolves around their relationship as well as their mutual interest in Rosamund Kwan.

If this film had a point, it was mostly lost on me. I'm not sure exactly why I rented it. I guess I was bored. I've seen worse (much worse, really) but there is nothing in this film that would lead me to recommend it to others.

Tony Leung Ka Fai is the best friend anyone can have, and Leslie Cheung is the selfish friend who keeps on using people. Rosamund Kwan is a kept woman whom Tony's character loves. HMMMM...

Summary: NULL

Out-of-work jerk Leslie Cheung double-crosses his musician buddy Leung Ka Fai to gain the affections of a lovely businesswoman (Rosamund Kwan); but when her boss discovers how conniving Cheung is, he hires what he feels to be a kindred spirit. Cheung loses just about all his friends along the way, then spontaneously gives up his cheating ways. Snnnn...oh, pardon me, just a quick nap. Thankfully, being a Gordon Chan film, there are lots of Asian cuties to divert your attention, and how!
