Ice (Reis) comes from a wealthy Shanghai family.
Because his ex-wife had left him for a material life in that territory,
her father never allows her to visit HK. Yet as his business grows, he
must bring her to Hong Kong and accept the consequences.
Ice, who lives in Shanghai with her father,
travels to Hong Kong with him on business. She decides she wants to find
her Mother who left for Hong Kong when Ice was a baby, even though it is
against her Father's wishes. Meanwhile a gang has planned to kidnap Ice.
Ice sneaks out to search for her Mother before the kidnappers arrive,
but due to evidence they leave, and her mysterious disappearance, her
Father believes her to have been kidnapped anyway. She meets and
befriends Wah, and asks to stay with him until she can find her Mother.
This of course leads to many complications.
The humor in this film is mostly low-key. This is
one of the few comedy films that feature Deanie Ip, and she does it very
well. Andy Lau gives a good comedic performance as well. The
ever-uncharismatic Nick Cheung plays more of a supporting role, so he
doesn't hurt the film much. Shooky Kwan playing Nick's girlfriend has
some good moments, even though she usually has him in her scenes.
Michelle Reis and Ronny Yu Rong Guang both have serious roles in the
film, which they play well.
