The Skinny: Useless and unnecessary retread of "A Star is Born." At the very least, the actors are appealing though that can only get you so far.
by Kozo:
     Restrained but still cheesy drama about a washed-up music producer (Alex Fong) who falls for a waitress (the winning Yoyo Mung) and proceeds to make her a star, albeit without his actual songwriting. It seems his stuff is labeled as “out of date” and is routinely rejected despite his efforts. Eventually, ego does him in and we must witness as he shuns happiness only to want it back. Then the usual happens to make everything teary.
     This is really a non-factor of a movie loaded with overused plot devices. The story of the self-destructive artist who loses his true love is a film staple and has touched many a Hong Kong flick (as well as many an American one). Thankfully, the actors are appealing. Alex Fong is always welcome, though he’s starting to resemble a Chinese Richard Gere. Yoyo Mung has shown real flashes of talent. If she can gain more confidence then she could be leading lady material. One hopes she would choose better material, though. (Kozo 2000)
