Movie Info

One misunderstanding after another seems to plague the efforts of Fred, Silver, and Tony in this romantic comedy. Away on vacation, the three run into two beautiful young women named Agnes and Maggie who are strolling down the beach and, by all appearances, seem quite wealthy. All three men are enamored with the ladies and a poker game gives Fred first dibs on which girl he will pursue and he decides on Maggie. Meanwhile, Silver and Tony are left to fight it out for Agnes' affections. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Cheng chong chui lui chai (The Romancing Star)

½

A partially cooked skirt-chasing comedy that occasionally gets away with behaving like The Three Stooges on a regular strength aphrodisiac. Any other time it's way too much Wong Jing -- and yes, there is most definitely such a thing -- you're not even five full minutes into "The Romancing Star" before a sexpot on a street corner tells Eric Tsang she's into porno mags and short, overweight, homely men. This is followed by a screwball car chase accompanied by Sherman Chow's adolescent score. These two sequences largely foreshadow what is about to unravel on-screen though there are a number of well placed "A Better Tomorrow" (1986) gags but sadly you'll have to wade through sequences where girls argue over who broke wind and men urinating on one another to get to them.
