The storyline is hardly original but then again, it is hard to expect TVB to be original at anything. But I have to say that there were SOOOOOO many funny moments and lines.
Sunny Chan is a very versatile actor although initially, I thought he was woody. He's amazing at playing his part in this series. Love him. Love his stubbornness and love him more when he acted as the old stubborn father to Ron Ng.
In a way, Myolie Wu really outdid herself in this role. It gave her the chance to be bad and mean and selfish...but for a very good reason. This kind of character is often hard to portray because you're basically playing with viewers' feelings. She's hateful but not as hateful. Fine balance. Hard portrayal. Love her over-the-top acting.
Ron Ng's really, really improved with his acting skills. Now, not only is he buff and quite cute, he can FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY ACT!!!
It's a lot of slapstick stuff, really, and you would have to leave your brain at the door to enjoy it. It is just a series for everyone to really overact to everything and they all did really great.
I enjoyed the series more than I thought I would. So, rent it, buy it, watch it, whatever if you're in for some mindless entertainment. It's just fun and nothing else.
But there is, of course, a moral behind the story, as with all other TVB series. A good one, at that.
