    A revenge romantic comedy about life and love for a gay teen in Taiwan. Can't believe this crap was a box office hit.

    A 2004 Taiwanese film which was directed by Chen Yin-jung (’‰f—u). It stars Tony Yang (—k—C”J), Duncan (ŽüŒQ’B), King Chin (‹à‹Î), Dada Ji (‹GG‘S), Jimmy Yang (—kr–¾), and Jason Chang (’£‘åûã). Poor atempt to make some kind of a gay romantic comedy about Chou T'ien-Tsai, a romantic Taiwanese male who takes a trip to visit an online boyfriend in person for the first time. This film was banned in Singapore because it "portrayed homosexuality as normal, and a natural progression of society" and it bothered me that no female was in any of the roles, like that's normal! I'll have to say that this sad work is deffinitely not art work - it's just a movie to make gay community feel better for the things they are doing. Some kind of Gay propaganda that being with a man is fun for young guys... I'll stick to the old values, and in this case agree with the Singaporean government!
