Hennessy Road in Wanchai is the real Hong Kong, like Delancy in the Lower East Side is the real New York. Oi-lin (Tang Wei) and Loy (Jacky Cheung) live and work on Hennessy Road. She takes care of her uncle's stockpile of bathtubs, and he peddles his mom's dehumidifiers. Their elders, eager to marry them off, foist them on a date. But alas, Loy is holding the torch for an old flame, and Oi-lin is waiting for her beau to get out of jail. With a delightful cast and a delicious script, director Ivy Ho brings home a one-of-a-kind romantic comedy loaded with "family values," and is at once100% Hong Kong and totally universal.
