The Skinny: Fluffy summer fun with an all-star cast. The movie is nothing more than ninety minutes of inconsequence, but the film suffices as easy entertainment. The performances, while nothing new, prove guileless, and it's simply nice to see Faye Wong back on the big screen. The Okinawa setting is great, too.
by Kozo:

It's romantic hijinks in Okinawa as megastars Leslie Cheung, Faye Wong and Tony Leung Ka-Fai team up for this breezy summer comedy. Big Tony is Dat, a wacky cop who’s vacationing in Okinawa with his girlfriend (Gigi Lai) and her jilted friend (Stephanie Che). While Dat considers dumping his girl, he chances across Jimmy Wong (Leslie Cheung), a famous thief who’s just completed a heist. Dat decides to try and capture Jimmy, thus earning his ticket out of the mailroom. However, Jimmy is aided by runaway gangster moll Jenny (Faye Wong), who he lusts after big time. Dat also wants Jenny, as does her ex, a Yakuza named Sato (Masaya Kato) who makes his romantic relations the primary concern of his entourage. 

To discuss this film’s aspirations towards high art would be meaningless; Okinawa Rendez-vous has less meaning than Needing You and none of that film’s subtle joys. Still, the location is marvelous, the actors give guileless performances and the whole exercise is a diverting ninety minutes. This film qualifies as nothing more than a frothy good time with little or no pretensions. Leslie Cheung has his penchant for overacting stifled, and few can rival the charismatic presence of Faye Wong or the sheer wackiness of Tony Leung Ka-Fai. On that last note, it’s nice to see a return to silly form for one of HK’s premier comedic actors. Let's hope he sticks at it instead of reverting to that punishing Christ of Nanjing phase. (Kozo 2000)
