This is one of the funniest and most charming "guy" films I've seen in a LOOOOOONG time!
It is a 90's look at three flawed (therefore REAL) guys sharing an apartment in HK.
Tony Leung Chui Wai is Tom, who has dated the same girl since high school and would like to know what he has been missing, but is too afraid to find out. Tony Leung Kar Fai is Dick - an aging womanizer who has never grown up and who is completely in the dark about his "regular" girlfriend's (Anita Yeun) love for and devotion to him. Lawrence Cheng (a real cameleon of an actor) is Giorgio - aka Hairy - who is a sensitive and clueless guy with effeminate characteristics.
The situations are crazy, the story line nuts, and the performances wonderful! These three have acted in films together, before. Who in HK has not? But, in this movie, the comraderie is so effective. You would swear that these guys really do live together and have known each other since childhood. Most of the goofiness is so spontaneous and natural that it often feels real.
I watch this film over and over (and not just to see the two Tonys - though that is reason enough!) just for the joy of seeing the interaction. I laugh so hard my face hurts. This is one of those films that just keeps getting better as you become more "friendly" with it.
This is a must see.
