Audience Reviews for Love on a Diet (Sau san naam neui)


It's a pretty hilarious comedy although the acting was too exaggerated, and seemed unrealistic at times. It provides a different view point on obesity, and some really heart-warming materials. It may not be the best film ever but still quite interesting to watch.

No need for synopsis as its all in the title. Very silly and a bit soppy and very implausible and not in the least bit profound and did I say very silly too.. Johnny To directed though you'd never guess it

Okay--let's start with the obvious: the fat suits were deplorable, and any fat person with self-respect will hate this movie's treatment of the overweight. However, the characters were charming, the dialogue was endearing, and this movie still had that certain special quality that I've seen in every Sammi Cheng movie so far. I enjoyed it, but less so than other Cheng movies.
