Review
by Kozo:

Possessing of the same Chinese language title as 1993's Crazy Love (the Loletta Lee Lai-Chun disrobing party), The Fruit is Swelling is a popular sleaze-romp that's basically a Category III version of the movie Big. Hot newcomer Chung Chun plays a girl named Peach, who ages 10 years from 8 to 18 thanks to a wish made under a magic tree. Put off at first, she puts her trust in her promiscuous sister Lychee (Hung Hiu-Wan), who’s eager to help when she isn't getting laid. Peach also befriends a local swimming instructor named Danny (Danny Wong), and through her experiences starts to discover the mysteries of adulthood (i.e. love, kissing, and the whole nine yards).

This is actually a somewhat decent little charmer helped by an appropriately child-like performance by Chung Chun. However, the charm ends as soon as people rip their clothes off and start bumping and grinding. Frankly, all the time-outs for people to get it on are somewhat out of place. Not helping this is the presence of Mr. Category III himself, Tsui Kam-Kong, who appears solely to act wacky and do every woman in sight. Chung Chun shows why she’s such a hot commodity, and amazingly the film has the sensitivity to avoid the idea of child porn entirely. This is an okay time waster if you're in it for the the raunchy scenes - and there are a lot of them! But the Sailor Moon references, were those really necessary? (Kozo 1997)
