Summary: It's a Disappointing Movie

I'll add my voice to the previous nay-sayers. Great cast, but someone forgot to write a script. Boring. Shallow. The actors appear eager to please, but are left empty-handed by a scriptwriter who appears to be auditioning for a job at Disney writing after-school specials.

Fans of the stars: resist the temptation.

Summary: Not what I was hoping for....

The reviews below are right...

Nowhere near as good as the "All's Well
Ends Well" movies...still I liked
Leslie Cheung in this...his character
was the only one that was convincing.
He and Teresa Mo do save this from being
awful. And the stab at Jurassic was at
least amusing at first...It looks like
it was made when Leslie was still shooting "Ashes of Time"..at the ending
credits it said 1994. If you like Leslie
alot, then it is worth your time. I will
miss him so much...his charisma shines
in just about any movie he ever made.

Summary: I made the same mistake as reviewer below me

i watched his after watching ALLS WELL ENDS WELL which is far superious to this movie!!

Though there were some funny parts, overall i felt bored watching this movie. OK there have there own version of MRS doubtfire, Tony Leung has some weird speech impediment, Lau Ching WAn is very annoying. I can't even remember much about Tony Leungs character!!

A good cast, just poor script, oh well!!

4.5/10

I made the dreaded mistake of seeing this (for the first time) right after watching "C'est la Vie, Mon Cherie." Don't ever do that. Lau Ching-Wan is a loser who gets dumped in this film, and to make matters worse, he wasn't even "paired up" with Anita Yuen. (And they made another crack at him about being "dark.") And unfortunately, I can't say too many more good things about the film itself. It's mediocre, at best, and that's too bad considering its excellent cast. Like many, the movie seemed like it couldn't decide whether or not it wanted to be a comedy or drama, and the end result proved it to be valuable as neither. As a drama, the relationships "developed" too quickly, and therefore seemed superficial. And as a comedy, besides Tony Leung stuttering 2-3 word phrases, the bloopers during the final credits was about it. And this movie has nothing to do with the Jimmy Stewart film the "same name." As a matter of fact, the only part that even involved Christmas was the opening credits.

The members of a large affluent family have always had trouble getting alone with each other. But through trial and tribulation, fathers, sons, older brothers, younger brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, boyfriends, and girlfriends all realized the true meaning of "family." A heart-warming comedy with many laughs and tears and a very happy ending.

(3.5/5)

Summary: NULL

Chummy Kau Ann, played by Teresa Mo, is being pursued by twosuitors, while comic book writer Kwai (Leung Ka Fai) is having difficulties stuttering his love to San Kit (Anita Yuen). The flick quotes, borrows, and steals from Mrs. Doubtfire, Mr. Sunshine, and Once Upon a Time in China, and has some lame farting and piss-drinking scenes (not to mention several fantasy sequences in a museum of rubber dinosaurs). All the couples either reunite or get engaged at a family reunion only a screenwriter could manufacture.

(2/4)
