Finally a romantic comedy I really enjoyed! Lau Ching-Wan and Gigi Leung are perfectly cast in Driving Miss Wealthy, a film that comes with an impressive pedigree. Writers James Yuen and Jessica Fong co-wrote award-winning drama Lost in Time, which was directed by Driving Miss Wealthy producer Derek Yee. But this time Derek Yee is not the director - his pal James Yuen did a wonderful job. It is very amusing, a little bit formulaic but never boring. Jennifer is unbelievably quirky and there are numerous situations designed to facilitate and/or hinder the lead actors' eventual union. The writers don't disappoint in that department, as Driving Miss Wealthy is loaded down with quirks and just plain strange stuff that's certainly funny and entertaining.
Lau Ching-Wan is Kit, an ex-cop who's looking to earn some money and his ex-boss Hui Siu-Hung sends him to be a bodyguard for reclusive tycoon Feng Kwok-Lap (Chow Chung). Kit manages to make it through the rigorous screening process, but it turns out the assignment is not to bodyguard Mr. Feng. Instead, he's supposed to watch over Feng's daughter Jennifer (Gigi Leung).
While that sounds easy, the result is surprising... enjoy watching it!
