Movie: All's Well, Ends Well 2011 (最强喜事) (2011)

All's Well, Ends Well 2011 is a Hong Kong romantic comedy movie. According to Wikipedia, this movie is the sixth installment in the All's Well, Ends Well film series. Wow! The 2009 movie is not bad too.

Synopsis from movieXclusive.com™: Make-up artist
Sammy (Louis Koo, 古天乐) is hired by Dream (Yan Ni, 闫妮) as the director of a cosmetic company with Claire (Cecilia Cheung, 张柏芝) being the only colleague who's willing to assist him.

Sammy invites
Ron (Donnie Yen, 甄子丹), a fellow makeup artiste cum woman magnet to join him. Though Ron might appear to be a woman's magnet, his heart still lingers with his first love Mona (Carina Lau, 刘嘉玲), a frustrated writer.

A minor incident in the new product commercial ties the friendship among Sammy, Ron and the yacht billionaire
Syd (Chapman To, 杜汶泽). Syd meets Claire and aims to pursue her. Having grown up in a poor family, Claire seizes this as a golden opportunity to live a prosperous life and asks Sammy for help to fulfill her dream, without realizing that she has fallen in love with Sammy.

A few high points of the movie:
- Louis Koo, being the gay-ish makeup artist Sammy is the best character in the movie. His effortless and natural performance keeps the movie going.

- Donnie Yen in a rom-com? Well, don't be surprised! He does a funny "cameo" of his well-known "Ip Man" character and his signature "Wing Chun" martial art moves.

- The hilarious mahjong scene with a delivery boy
(Ronald Cheng, 郑中基) and the dinner scene involving Sammy and Ron visiting Ron's family consisting of five or six ladies. Mistaken as gay partners, both Sammy and Ron are bombarded with 'straight' and 'bent' straw analogies. ROTFL!

And a few low points of the movie:
- Apart from the hilarious scenes with two thumbs-up LOL factors mentioned above, the storyline is bland and some of the characters are downright annoying at times.

- Carina Lau's character seems to be pointless and wasted. I wonder what's on her mind when she agrees to play this weird role. She fares better in heavyweight roles such as Empress Wu Zetian in Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame (2010).

Overall and in summary, this is a 'LOL-to-make-you-feel-good' Chinese New Year movie. That's all. :)
