The Skinny: Mind-numbingly awful and without any redeeming qualities. Watching this film could be considered a form of punishment in some countries.
by Kozo:
     This disappointingly bad romantic drama was produced by actress Cheung Man. Tony Leung Ka-Fai stars as a poor mechanic who falls in love with gorgeous Wu Chien-Lien. However, he's ultra-poor and hangs out with the annoying Chan Bak-Cheung. Before he can get up the gumption to confess his love, she moves away. Years later, he's become rich and desirable, and Wu reappears. Unfortunately, she's now married to the scummy Jack Gao. And even worse, Tony is still hanging out the annoying (and now older) Chan Bak-Cheung.
     Blaming this mess on producer Cheung Man could be fashionable (she disappeared from the entertainment scene within a year of this film's release), but the problem with Dream Lover is really this: the movie is crap. From top-to-bottom, this is a true stinker that bores like you would not believe. Wu Chien-Lien's character is subdued, and her usual screen charisma is missing. Furthermore, Tony Leung Ka-Fai and Chan Bak-Cheung are waaaay too old for their roles. Frankly, the idea that these are guys in their twenties is completely laughable. One wonders what happened to make the script so uninteresting and ridiculous. Thankfully, the movie ends. If you're smart, you could hit "stop" and end it sooner. (Kozo 1996)
