This raucous, gender-stretching comedy follows the disruptions of a glamorous Hong Kong music couple’s tumultuous romance by an “ordinary” fan’s noisy arrival in their lives. With great comic story development, the film confronts social stereotypes of masculine females, male anxieties about homosexuality, and the limits of male femininity. This book offers important background on comedic narrative structure in Cantonese opera and other traditional sources that have influenced Hong Kong cinema.
