Summary: Average

An enjoyable romance/comedy from 2 of Hong Kong’s best comedians, Chow Yun Fat and Dodo Cheng. It’s certainly no classic film, and there are plenty of other films where the two stars shine, but this is still worth checking out if you like films like this.

The romance side of things seem too phoney, and comedy seems to be the dominant in this film. Though a lot of the jokes are not funny, the good ones make up for any disappointment. I must say though, neither Chow Yun Fat or Carol Cheng seemed to really have their hearts in this, like they were being forced to do something they didn’t want to do.

Rating: [3/5]

Summary: Pleasant light comedy

Joe is being a bit tough. Though no classic, and somewhat lacking chemistry between the two leads, this is a very likeable little caper comedy. Hey, where else but in HK would you hear dialogue like "What ? Not tiger's penis soup again ?" ?

Give this charming film a go, and it might well charm you.

DoDo Cheng in a glamour role - good grief ! For those who, like me, took a while to recognize her, she's the rich woman who gets the Presidential Suite, much to the disgust of an older couple who also thought they had it. Amusing comedy about double-dealing business people and DoDo's search for a suitable man to father her child and hence be enriched by two million dollars. The man she really loves is old flame Chow Yun Fat, a cop turned private detective, who although sincere in his love for DoDo, completely lacks tact and has terrible timing. Also in this muddle is Chow's client, whose factory has been legally stolen by his scheming brother and the brother's lawyer (who is also being pushed to run for council election by his domineering wife). DoDo approaches the lawyer to draw up a will. Lawyer, with wife's approval, pursues DoDo for the right to get the two million. So does Chow's dopey assistant Alan. Lots of misundertanding and fairly tame humour about sex. Only a brief glimpse of the loudmouth comic DoDo was later to become very famous for.

Overall : Pretty good light fun.

Rich widow Carol Cheng returns to Hong Kong to find a suitable manto father a child. She contacts bigshot lawyer Pang Kin-San to help find a candidate and draw up a legal contract for the process. Coincidentally, her former love, private detective Chow Yun-Fat, is investigating this same lawyer for bilking his client out of a garment factory. Things get even messier when the lawyer's wife decides that the lawyer himself should father Carol's child, and take her money in the process. But don't worry, Carol is no fool. The reason this movie never elevates to more than just an average comedy is that it doesn't take advantage of its two main stars. They have only a limited number of scenes together, and there are too many scenes of supporting characters. Chow and Cheng are in automatic mode here, playing characters they've played many times before. I guess it's not surprising since they were both making four or five films at a time at this point in their careers. If you want to see their true chemistry, check out NOW YOU SEE LOVE, NOW YOU DON'T.
