Perfect Rivals (美好冤家) (2011)

We're fans of Han Yew Kwang's quirky, well-written comedies. We're not fans of how they've been mis-marketed as niche arthouse films by Singapore's Media Development Authority.

This time round, Han gets shoehorned into a "commercial feature" that aims to please but comes across as hollow.

This comedy hasn't seen any distribution outside Singapore/Malaysia despite starring veteran Hong Kong comedians. You can study this as a film with too many cooks, a script with too many weaknesses, starring local comedians who don't have the talent to play the game.
