Love among the misfits...
6 August 2006 | by sangepengyouSee all my reviews

Joey Yung(Yammie) stars as a former ugly duckling who grows up to be a wacky pet groomer and gets taken under the wing of a socially stunted but successful restaurant owner, Lau Ching Wan (Hugo). While Joey has shed her outward childish gawkiness, Lau is forever reminded of his shortcomings by a large facial birthmark. Apart, life has kept both shy and guarded but once an unlikely friendship strikes up between them, everything begins to change. Their sense of timing, however, may prove to be their undoing.

While the basic plot premise is as old as love itself-- the pangs of unrequited love, the sheer wackiness of Yammie and Hugo and their supporting cast of quirky friends-- particularly YY (the fascist police woman) and Butt (the pining artist)-- give what might have proved a tired old tale a refreshingly enjoyable spin.

Yung again displays that she has a potent and endearing screen presence-- particularly in her youthful flashbacks-- that makes you want to see more of her. Aided by a cast of well-seasoned comedic actors and an odd-beat script, this is one light and breezy HK comedy that bears repeat viewing.

Just wish there had been more of Yung's goofy schoolgirl.
