    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.

    A ridiculous but hilarious romantic comedy. After her boyfriend moves to the States to study, his girlfriend Mini Mo becomes a compulsive eater and balloons to 300 pounds. When he declares his love for her and reminds her of the vow to meet each other 10 years later, Mini teams up with her fat friend in order to lose 200 pounds in 6 months. Despite the ugly fat suits, the actors/actresses carry the movie with lots of heartfelt and funny moments. Despite the fake hands, it was simply hilarious to see Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng with huge bellies that jiggle and double chins. The movie has tons of hilarious scenes, such as Mini telling Fatso not to eat so loud while she is dieting. It works its way around in a very nice plot, especially with Fatso literally "fighting" to help her lose weight. Funny, sweet, and never boring, Love on a Diet is light on plot but heavy on heart.

    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 <img src="http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/5053/283469189cq6.jpg">

    As if the concept of dressing up Andy Lau and Sammi Cheng in fatsuits ain't hilarious enough, the IRL fit looking pair also manage to retain some of the chemistry and charm from their previous collabo Needing You. But the fat jokes eventually prevail, resulting in a disappointingly crude comedy from directors Johnnie To and Wai Ka Fai.
