100 Ways to Murder Your Wife (1986)
Reviewed by: Gaijin84 on 2009-12-06
Summary: Lame comedy...
Chow Yun-Fat and director Kenny Bee star in this somewhat lame comedy about two professional soccer players who drunkenly promise each other they will kill the others' overbearing or cheating spouse. When Roberto (Bee) thinks Fa (Yun-Fat) has actually committed the act he immediately regrets it, but Fa insists that Roberto follow through with his end of the deal. Weak comedy hi-jinks ensue.
I just could not find the humor in this film. Not that it is in incredibly bad taste or low brow, but the comedy itself is very weak. I've never seen Chow Yun-Fat act like such a buffoon, and his character is so annoying and unlikeable that it's hard to want to keep watching. Bee is not that much better, sniffling and whining his way through the film. In fact, there is only one scene in the entire film (the appearance of Bennett Pang) that I actually laughed out loud. Otherwise I was yawning or looking at the time elapsed on the film to see when it would end. Bee could have saved the film somewhat by having a very dark ending (both men in the pool), but unfortunately he throws it back in to the predictable. Really a waste of an excellent cast.

2/10
