The Skinny: A fine romantic comedy and one of Chow Yun-Fat's best non-action roles.
by Kozo:
     For fans of Chow Yun-Fat, this popular New Year’s Comedy is a definite change of pace from his usual two-gun theatrics. Chow plays the uncouth headman of a rural HK village who possesses a really laughable hairstyle. When his fiancée Firefly Kwok (Carol Cheng) returns from studying in England, she’s become a punk hipster much to Chow’s dismay. He loses her to the big city (Hong Kong) after he blows a fuse over her radical change. However, he soon decides to follow her in an effort to win her back. In the process, he opens a new business, finds a new girlfriend (Carina Lau), and generally becomes a better man.
     This romantic comedy from Alex Law and Mabel Cheung is a surprisingly low-key effort that’s free of the usual zany Hong Kong antics. What remains is a well-acted, textured romantic comedy that leaves a lot unsaid. Chow is in his usual top form, and Carol Cheng does a good job as the hot-tempered Firefly. An entertaining and enjoyable little film. (Kozo 1997)
