Pretty damn fu**ing excellent comedy movie. Completely underrated, underrecognized, and underappreciated. Chow Yun-Fats best comedy along with 100 Ways to murder your Wife (1986) and The Greatest Lover (1988). Sally and Joey are perfect. If you like this also find Jackie Chan's The Twin Dragons (1992). Must see.

A really great romantic comedy-a hilariously offbeat and sometimes offensive misogynistic romp. It is a truly dazzling film, considering that in one year Chow and Sally would go on to star in The Killer. For Chow, the transition back to action (he had already starred in "A Better Tomorrow" and a number of B shoot em ups in the 70s) exhibited his versatility. Sally, however, proved herself to be best suited for this kind of role.

An amusing film, carried by the considerable charms of Chow Yun-Fat, Sally Yeh and Joey Wang. A fun ride, proving that Hong Kong films can teach Hollywood a thing or two about romantic comedies as well as action films.

Enjoyable, but can make you disgussed because of its anti-feministic plot. Cannot enjoy from the heart in conflict over moral issues. Well, you can say this eccentric setting is the essence of Hong Kong films, but eccentricity's so much in this one that characters all look brainless stupid sometimes. Chow Yun-Fat is good to do this kind of comical role and probably is only choice for this role who gets loved by two super-beautiful chicks played by Joey Wang and Sally Yeh, both in their times of being in full bloom in their careers. Produced by Tsui Hark, who constantly makes this kind of eccentric love comedies, and directed by Yuen Chor, the legendary film director of 70s Hong Kong.
