Veteran director and actor Lawrence Cheng’s latest comedic film contains some good 90s moments (largely due to the digitally captured Carol Cheng) and enough laughs for an interesting Chinese New Year comedy. Something that have been lacking for many years as most Chinese New Year comedies are now made for the Mainland audience, namely Stephen Chow. Lawrence Cheng impresses as the boss who have climbed the ladder after divorcing with his then wife (Carol Cheng) from the successful 90s prequels. What we get is duo collaborator Chrissie Chau whose performance in 2014’s Break Up 100 was undoubtedly her career highlight and fresh newcomer Larine Tang who impresses in a busty debut. There is enough comic moments in the film to carry through and the Carol Cheng interactions remains the film highlighted moments. Still, despite its honest intention, the film never rises above the existing genre convention, instead what we get is more of the same 90s style New Year comedy and sometimes that’s probably enough to ask for.
