Summary: Pleasant boy's-eye-view of growing up to be fourteen
Tang (who also narrates) plays Bor with an engaging mixture of wide-eyed naivete, good humour and stressed-out angst. Along the way, people give him advice, some less than helpful. For instance, his father Ting Yeung (Eric Tsang) admonishes him to "cut down on your wanking". When the beautiful Moon moves in, Bor's dreams spin out of control, and he melts whenever she gives him "that look". The Bee Gees "First Of May" is overused but effective. Though fairly gentle, this film doesn't dress teen problems up in polite terms, and there are even mild sex scenes.
OVERALL : Not great, but warm, endearing and sometimes funny.

Footnote : Some scenes of this film were copied into the much raunchier Screwball_94.
