The Skinny: I have seen a bad movie. It is called Love Recipe.
by Kozo:
A wannabe UFO movie that fails at being even a passable relationship comedy. Basically, a bunch of whiny HK residents go to Thailand where they confront the issues of their yuppie lives. The film's central story is a troubled marriage between Kathy Chow and Thomas Lam. Sadly, she rejects the advances of Alex Fong, who plays a too-cool chef hot for her. Despite his suave come-ons, she never truly warms to him and instead seems to waffle about whether or not she'll ever forgive her husband for attempting to stray. In retaliation (or maybe boredom) Alex concocts a "Love Set" meal that manages to bring all the film's plot threads to a close thanks to a magical spell called: convenient plot device. *Sigh* Kathy Chow and Alex Fong have become better actors since they made this film, though that judgment may be a fault of the material. The other actors are uniformly uninteresting, including Thomas Lam (of Black Cat), who ranks as the most uncharismatic Chow Yun-Fat clone ever. UFO has nothing to worry about.
