U-Man
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Cheung Chi Sing.


2002 is the year of fantastic Anthony Wong performances. With one notable exception. U-MAN stars Wong and Sam Lee as undercover cops who have to infiltrate a catholic girls school to find some stolen money. Wong disguises as a priest, Lee as a schoolgirl with a backbrace and braces. Lee finds the school lesbian developing strong attraction to him, while Wong falls for the girls karate instructor (Rachel Fu). Eventually they suspect Gillian Cheung (of the band TWINS), who is the daughter of a triad baddie (Lam Suet). It's all in good natured fun. Sam Lee is hilarious and Anthony Wong just exceedingly strange. It's one of those movies that has nothing to say and nothing to do, and just hangs out with you for ninety minutes. By the end, it has worn out its welcome, eaten all the Cheeze-Its in the house, and left you to clean up the place.
