The Skinny: Messy action comedy gives stars Patrick Tam and Shu Qi enough to do, but the film is so patently ridiculous that their efforts seem wasted.
by Kozo:
     This commercial action comedy has its moments, but collapses in a morass of Mission: Impossible antics and cheesy action escapades. Patrick Tam is Jim Si-Bon (as in James Bond), a wacky commercial director who spies his true love Julia (Shu Qi) when sheís getting into a car with Alex (Ken Wong). Unbeknownst to Bon, Julia is a spy for a hi-tech criminal organization led by Jackson Lau. She was brought in when she was only a child, and longs to become a normal woman with a normal life. Enter all sorts of wacky circumstances including new partner Candy (Taiwanese sensation Tin Sum), Bonís increasing infatuation, and a new assignment.
     James Yuen wrote and directed this mist, and at least itís better produced than his last film Red Rain. There are some fun moments between the actors. Patrick Tam shows a surprisingly playful comic side, and Shu Qi is always fun to watch. Tin Sum is a delight as well, considering that all sheís doing is playing off her buxom figure. Still, when all is said and done, there just isnít that much going on in this movie. Itís just a string of wacky situations and Threeís Company style humor without enough charm or suspense to tie the whole thing together. Also, how we can enjoy watching Bon and pals (Michael Tse and Leung Wing-Chung) stalk our heroines by installing spy cameras is beyond me. (Kozo 1999)
