It's been awhile since I had watched a Hong Kong movie or anything as of that. So I thought to myself, why not watch this? After all, they have veteran actors like Eric Tsang, Louis Koo and Gordon Lam. As well as a great cameo supporting cast (which I had no idea so many of them were in the movie after checking the cast section)

When I began the movie, I didn't have high expectations thinking, "oh my god, this is going to be the best movie with beautifully written scripts and acting!". The reason why is that this is a comedy movie and with actors that are known for acting in silly comedy movies, I knew what I was expecting.

I read that it's based on a UK show with the same title I believe. I have not watched it so I can't say if they're similar in filming. The movie gave off that Sherlock Holmes vibe with the inspector coming into the house for sure though.

This movie definitely funny with the dry humor and slapstick comedy. I'm not sure about others, but I do enjoy those jokes that might be overdone in some movies. This movie didn't do that which I'm glad. I think I laughed louder in the credits because of the NGs.

The plot was great to watch, but at some parts I found myself expecting what was happening and some parts I was confused, but over all I had no trouble following.

*the music didn't give a big impression because i was focused in the acting

If you're looking for an easy casual movie to watch, I recommend choosing this!

Sherry Baby!

I have seen one other version of this 'film' before & it was a serious drama... this film is most definitely not a serious drama in any shape, way or form. It is a fairly short, absurdly funny, silly film (it has a dark undertone but I definitely view this as a comedy) & perhaps surprisingly I enjoyed it. I say surprisingly because the setting & genre was so different from the original work. It is very highly stylized which I really like; it put me in mind of some work by Sion Sono. It actually gets a bit slow towards the end but the gag reel alongside the credits makes up for that.

Bonus - Donnie Yen being all Four Seasons singing Sherry was A-MA-ZING - I think I'll watch it again just for that!
