My Sweetie
Hong Kong 2004
Directed by Patrick Kong.


Hong Kong DJ Sammy Leung was pretty funny as an idiotic, child-like model in this year's Ronald Cheng megahit Supermodel. But I was little put off by his starring role here, as an idiotic, child-like shampoo company office worker. Since he's supposed to be the love interest here, I sort of expected a bit more depth, a hint of maturity. No dice. He falls for Snow (played by model Gaile Lai), a new employee at his office. The other new employee, Strong Chan, is his enemy ever since childhood. She is played by Stephy Tang, lead band member of the girl-group Cookies. And where there's one, you know the movie is going to be stuffed to the gills with quirky female supporting cast members because they've got to fit the rest of the group (thankfully down to five now, from an original nine) into the story as well. Of course, he falls in love with his old enemy. In the most profound moment of the movie, Sammy declares that true love is like finding the right shampoo, "once you have it, you won't change." Ronald Cheng, Sam Lee, and even Miriam Yeung make cameos to try and keep this ship afloat, but there are too many Cookies on board and it sinks like a rock.
