    Something completely different... a teenager's movie from Hong Kong with a story about friends trying to meet girls on a very unique way - making a porn movie! Actually it is a fake porn film starring a Japanese AV girl (AV girl being equivalent to an American Porn star)... They managed to raise money to bring her over from Japan, setup the film shoot and crew just to sleep with the star: Amamiya Manami! The uniqueness of the movie is amazing and pops out from the story line, acting, raunchy humour... but everything is handled very tastefully with excellent performances from all of the leads (2 of the leads are members of HK boy band 'Shine'). The director Edmond Pang Ho Cheung is showing the potential which is well above the budget movies... his handheld camera and quick pacing make everything go down incredibly easy. As a witty, off-colour indie joke fest, AV is high-potency stuff!

    Particular comedia sobre un grupo de estudiantes embarcados en el disparatado proyecto de rodar una pelicula porno. En el fondo del asunto subyace una denuncia al amodorramiento del colectivo universitario, en contraste con el activismo demostrado en generaciones anteriores (en este caso se habla de Hong-kong, pero seria valido para cualquier otro lugar). A pesar de esta voluntad critica, la pelicula unicamente sobresale cuando los fogonazos de ironia se hacen mas evidentes. No pasa de simpatica.

    i didn't watch it all (i forgot about friday night sbs titty flicks) but what i saw was not bad. the funniest bits were the ranty monologues - one from the uncle about the youth of hk and the other likening rosa park's struggle with the dream of making a porno. it's good to have some modern teensploitation t&a for one to enjoy.

    You never really see teen comedies from Asia quite like this. Witty, smart, and actually well filmed.
