YesAsia Editorial Description

Mainland director Kiefer Liu (Agan) generated a lot of buzz in 2006 with Big Movie, China's very own Scary Movie take on contemporary Chinese cinema. His hilarious follow-up, Two Stupid Eggs, follows the same formula of wordy comedy and offbeat humor, but takes a more focused approach for a simpler narrative and barrels of laughs. A remake of the Spanish comedy Torremolinos 73, Two Stupid Eggs revolves around the uproarious lives of a married couple played by Guo Tao of Crazy Stone and Taiwan beauty Annie Liu (Exodus, Ah Sou). Hong Kong comedy regulars Sam Lee, Gordon Lam, and Cheung Tat Ming, as well as Yao Chen from Big Movie and My Own Swordsman, also appear in the film.

Wenyao (Guo Tao) and Xiaoyu (Annie Liu) are just another modern couple whose marriage has lost its spark. Photography enthusiast Wenyao works as a salesman for the publication "Guide for Newlyweds", and one day he's struck with the idea to shoot a racy short film to supplement the book. The aspiring director becomes increasingly caught up with his project, and even recruits his wacky neighbors for the job. But as he's shooting a marital guidance film, his own marriage is heading for the rocks.

Professional Review of "Two Stupid Eggs (VCD) (Hong Kong Version)"

May 27, 2008

This professional review refers to Two Stupid Eggs (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
Two Stupid Eggs is Mainland Chinese director Kiefer Liu's follow up of sorts to his hit parody Big Movie and for a change is actually a remake of a Western film, namely the 2003 award winning Spanish comedy Torremolinos 73. Although dealing with similar subject matter and themes, revolving around films and film making in modern China, he this time around adopts a more character and narrative driven approach, attempting to balance the laughs with a coherent story and a personal touch.

The film opens with bumbling salesman Wen Tao (actor Guo Tao, also in Ning Hao's excellent Crazy Stone) trying and failing to sell copies of the book "Guide for Newlyweds" to entirely uninterested passengers on a bus. A frustrated director himself, from a long line of distinguished cameramen, he hits upon the wonderful idea of boosting sales by putting together a saucy film to accompany the book. To this end, he gathers together a motley bunch of performers (including Hong Kong actor Sam Lee and Big Movie actress Yao Chen) and begins production, not letting his lack of funds and resources dampen his enthusiasm. What does threaten to derail his dream is his neglected wife Xiao Yu (Annie Liu, recently in Exodus and Shamo), who in no uncertain terms wants a baby and for her husband to settle down and lead a more normal life.

Unsurprisingly, with this being a Mainland China production, despite the potentially racy premise of pornography production, Two Stupid Eggs shies away from anything sleazy, being for the most part charming and rather sweetly innocent. Wen Tao makes for a likeable protagonist with a hint of Ed Wood to him, a classic dreamer character who it't hard not to root for as he tries to fulfil his modest ambition, with Guo Tao turning in a charismatic performance in the role. Since he is well drawn and easy to sympathise with, the film has a solid emotional core to fall back upon when towards the end the comedy takes a back seat to more serious themes. As might be expected this relates mainly to Wen Tao learning the value of acceptance and sacrifice for the greater good, though the message works well enough in the context and is mercifully not delivered in a heavy handed manner, being used to help put a positive spin on certain aspects of the film which might otherwise have been quite depressing.

The film is genuinely funny throughout, and works well as a screwball farce, relying for the most part on a witty script rather than out and out slapstick or anything too crude. Although not particularly original, working in the usual misunderstandings and the mandatory wacky audition montage sequence, the gags generally hit their mark and keep the viewer nicely entertained if not exactly in fits of laughter. The film is a topical affair with elements of satire, packing in plenty of cultural references, and touching on issues of media, morality and even the dreaded Chinese censors. Unlike the early comedies of Feng Xiaogang, the film is amusing in a gentle and rather mild fashion, never trying to be particularly biting or mean spirited, though is no less enjoyable for it. Probably the funniest scenes come as a result of a casting couch scandal which results in Wen Tao being branded and finding fame as a so-called "hooligan director" while his wife slowly catches on.

The film also benefits from being pleasingly cinema literate, and as well as the inevitable slew of gag references to other Chinese productions such as Curse of the Golden Flower Liu throws in some rather more high brow quotes from the likes of Fellini and Eisenstein, used for good mock-pretentious effect. Dealing not only with the film making process and the eccentricities of the Chinese film industry, but also with the relationship between the director and his art, the proceedings have a nicely self-reflective feel.

Again, this is somewhat tempered by the overall message, which is to an extent at odds with the very concept of one man pursuing his dream, though Liu still manages to convey an impression of intimacy, and the film is certainly heartfelt. As a result, Two Stupid Eggs is a film which both amuses and genuinely attempts to speak to the viewer, and it stands as somewhat of an unexpected and minor gem which should be enjoyed by all fans of modern Chinese cinema.
