Bored judge Raymond (Ching Wan Lau) indulges himself in one-night stands and flirtations, causing his girlfriend Ah Qiu (Sammi Cheng) to leave him. Ah Qiu, a journalist, doesn't lose any time in falling in love with Keung (Louis Koo), a super-cop she is sent to interview. The only problem is that after a narrow brush with death, Keung is now unable to perform any conjugal duties. Raymond, on the other hand, meets his match in a spoiled 18-year-old (Charlene Choi).

This movie was actually quite hilarious in certain parts. Okay, the jokes about a certain male body part was off the scale. There is a part where they (Raymond and Ah Qui) try to help Keung and use weights to strengthen...well....THAT body part. LOL! It was a riot. I laughed so hard.

The story gets slow most of the time. This movie really had two stories but if they focused on Keung's story, it would have been even better. The story about Ray and the young girl was actually quite sick to me. So I rolled my eyes quite often when it came to them.

The movie was actually worthwhile. I'm not big on Chinese comedies but this has some substance to keep me intertained. Louis Koo wasn't so bad to look at either. Not the most handsome but nice enough for the story.
