Summary: This movie is not a jerk...

A loser (Lau)who was once a stock car racer but now parks cars for a living, gets a visit from his ex who wants him to watch his son in Hong Kong so she can get remarried. He learns a lot from his intelligent and Western-educated son (Lam), who looks up to him as a somebody because of his one time shot as a stock car racer. He doesn't seem him self that way and hopes to redeem himself by racing again...

I didn't know what to expect when I saw this movie in a theater in Canada, but I thought it was pretty funny and enjoyable. Lau is good as a cranky nobody, but evolves into a loving father. The kid was kind of annoying at first but he became likable. And this was the first time I saw Hsu Chi, and she was great and cute in the movie too. And it was cool to see Cecilia Yip again in a film. It's a good mix of comedy and drama and is obviously underrated. But it deserves a second look. I've watched it several times. Let's watch it again...

Summary: Bad

I don't know why I bothered watching this one again, it's awful. It's supposed to be a light drama, but it's just so boring. Not one of Lau Chings better works that's for sure.

Rating: 1.5/5

Summary: BORING!!

Unfunny comedy about Lau Ching wan looking after his foreign son. The only good thing in this movie is Shu qi, who plays the ditzy gal roles very well!!
