The Skinny: Highly commercial "Nick Cheung as a dog" comedy manages to entertain thanks to a bunch of animals. And Michelle Reis.
Review
by Kozo:
     The insanely beautiful Michelle Reis stars in this trifle of a comedy as Sharon, an art director who dotes on her golden retriever Man. However, thanks to a freak lightning accident/plot device, Man does a Freaky Friday with scummy contractor Fai (Nick Cheung). Fai/Man wants to return to his comfortable life with Sharon, but how can he tell her he used to be her dog? And what about the inevitable love complications? 
     What follows is 100 minutes of misunderstandings and scatological humor masquerading as a Hong Kong film. This sort of high-concept plotting is usually reserved for American movies, but writer-director James Yuen manages to pull a decently entertaining movie out of it. This is mostly due to the presence of Michelle Reis, who in consistently engaging in this sort of comedic trifle, and all the pooches, who manage to steal most of Nick Cheung's scenes. Still, Cheung is a good sport here, as he handles the dog stuff with enough physical comedy and enthusiasm to make it work. This isn't a film begging to be seen but if you like dogs or either of the leads then it's worth checking out. (Kozo 2002)
