The Skinny: Bad.
by Kozo:

Second in a rash of radio show-themed films about three guys, their radio show, and their women. Michael Chow, Edmond Leung, and Simon Lui are the three guys, and Pauline Suen, Halina Tam, and Amanda Lee are their girls. The plot features your standard hot-button issues with pop culture references and sexual politics aplenty.  Sadly, the jokes suck, the actors so-so, the plot predictable and the script uninteresting.

More bluntly: this is a total zero bomb. Even the charming level of HK cinema is lost on this one since it feels more manufactured than a Big Mac from McDonalds. Michael Chow is not a guarantee of quality, even in “crazy cop” form. On the plus side, there are many unimportant cameos, and both Halina Tam and Pauline Suen have winning screen presences. Still, this movie is contrived as all hell, and every move feels false. As Feel 100% goes, this one’s more like 10%. (Kozo 1996)
