No more romancing charm.
23 November 2014 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

The Romancing Star 3 stars Stanley Fung, Andy Lau and Jing Wong, all who appeared in the previous sequel, which was charming and funny. The story here is about Stanley Fung and James Wong's characters, who have been rivals since birth. Now they own competing business and will do whatever it takes to triumph over the other. Throw in some beautiful women neighbors, and you'll get one, supposedly, wild comedy.

While I haven't seen this movie in ages, I remembered that it is not a Hong Kong comedy I would recommend. The previous movie was entertaining, laughable, and charming; this film was boring ridiculously silly. The plot did have potential, but the script and momentum went all over the place. The humor was just a bunch of slapstick nonsense.

The movie had a large cast if characters that was nice to watch, but other than that, I would stick with the first two movies rather than this one.

Grade D-
