Summary
  A minor phone mishap sealed the fates of three brothers and the women of their dreams. Raymond Wong plays the oldest sibling Fang Jian-hui who's the host of a daytime cooking show and falls for a Cantonese opera singer only to find out his brother has been making crank calls to her at all hours of the night. Chow Yun-fat in a never-seen-before role as the effeminate womanizing second sibling Fang Jian-lang, is torn between steady girlfriend (Do Do Cheng) and a sexy siren played by Cherie Chung. Jacky Cheung rounds up the star-studded cast as the youngest brother Fang Jian-sheng, a shy cartoonist who has a crush on a girl he met in the park.[from the Joy Sales DVD]
