The Skinny: Fluffy Gen-X romantic comedy that has all but defined its own genre in Hong Kong. It's also one of the better ones as it balances sap with silliness extremely well.
 
Review
by Kozo:

This extremely popular manga-inspired comedy is a charming and deceptively frivolous affair. Dior Cheng is Jerry, a slacker who does something with computers for a living and resides in a brightly colored apartment that looks like a set from Sesame Street. He falls for Fong-Fong (Gigi Leung), who looks sort of anime-ish with big eyes and short hair. 

Meanwhile, Jerryís best buds Cherrie (Sammi Cheng) and Hui-Lok (Eric Kot) look on while experiencing their own Gen-X issues. Hui-Lok doesnít appreciate his faithful girlfriend Man-Yi (Michelle Wong Man), and Cherrie is annoyed watching Jerry and Fong-Fong because she likes Jerry, too. Big surprise. Anyway, itís all very cute and such as these people battle with hearts and heads before the real plot shows up: Jerry must choose between Fong-Fong and Cherrie. And in doing so, he reaches into the depths of his soul or something like that.

Actually, Iím being unfair in my cynicism towards the film. Despite the overdone situations, wacky characters, and predominantly silly tone, there is a real feel to Joe Maís Gen-X comedy. In showing the childish and silly nature of his characters, he inevitably leads us to fortune-cookie message of the film: time for Jerry to grow up. Yep, this is a coming-of-age movie mixed with wacky sappy stuff. Jerry eventually chooses to be with one of the female leads, and in doing so he makes a life-altering choice thatís all but unseen underneath the final actís wacky Mission: Impossible parody.

The final message is ultimately a typical movie one concerning commitment, but the writing and the leads bring things across in a fun, playful manner. Given the time, this movie can affect - especially to the movieís primary twenty something audience. The cast is likable and attractive, but Sammi Cheng is the standout with her charming natural performance and terrific alto singing voice. The manga influence can be seen in the candy-colored sets and even the Canto-pop montages. The highlight of this film is a parody of Andy Lauís A Moment of Romance that will leave you in stitches. Give Joe Ma some credit; itís three in a row for this guy. (Kozo 1996)
