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.
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
like a lesson you girls can take? Well, if you are looking
for something aimlessly inconsequential.
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.
the rate I’m going, I almost sound like an angry feminist.
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.
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.
