Kitty is a reserved young woman who discovers her boyfriend is cheating on her. Given the opportunity to reinvent herself, she throws herself into the singles scene with surprising sexual abandon and learns through experience how to please men - not to mention how to please herself at the same time! Meanwhile, adventurous roommate Vivian finds her wild ways tamed by a straight-laced dope who cares for her in ways her usual one-night-stands will not. Finally, adorable Mei is dumped by her boyfriend and rebounds into the arms of her sexy female boss. Will she switch sides and enter into a same-sex relationship?


No thanks to the media, women are often portrayed as whining lovelorn creatures that easily spiral into depression and moodiness over, well, the big issue called love. And in this Hong Kong production chronicling the love lives of three girls living in the urban city, we get another familiar take on how girls whine and spiral into depression over, well, the big issue called love.

Jo Kuk (My Name Is Fame), Rain Li (House Of Mahjong) and Monie Tung (Dancing Lion) do a “Sex and the City” and play three girls with different outlooks on life, love and marriage. Along the way, different men are met, hooked up and dumped.

Sounds like a lesson you girls can take? Well, if you are looking for something aimlessly inconsequential.

After watching the 77-minute feature helmed by newbie director Lee Po-Cheung, the only lessons you’ll get are how women are portrayed as either lovesick beings who continuously yearn for the impossible notion of true love, sex-crazy animals out to drive men horny and nuts, or creatures who gather together during their free time to talk about how to handle men.

At the rate I’m going, I almost sound like an angry feminist.

But no, I’m actually quite amused with this movie for its occasional laugh-out-loud sequences: Check out how the three lasses try out sex tricks on a life-size plastic doll, how they embarrassingly make situations in bed a comic relief, and how they spout self-important outlooks on life and love.

When the end credits roll, you may not take home with you any important messages, but you’d have a fluffy fun time seeing how girls whine and spiral into depression over, well, the big issue called love.
