A romantic comedy ... for a while Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
The first hour or so of "Love in Time" reminded me of the zany mid-'80s Chow Yun Fat comedies. Working class folks struggle with menial jobs while searching for love, all the while bellowing at each other at the top of their lungs. Unlike those Chow Yun Fat golden oldies, writer/director Leefire's thoroughly up-to-date film spends its last 35 minutes wallowing in its characters' maudlin self-loathing. With this film, Leefire creates something new: a nihilistic anti-love story, a film in which everyone's hopes and dreams end up shattered. He must find Patrick Kong's cynical romances too optimistic. Enjoy the laughs in the first 65 minutes because it gets pretty dark thereafter.

Ill-tempered, chain-smoking Cho (Bosco Wong) lives with his womanizing buddy Beer (Sammy Leung) in an apartment rented from Cho's uncle. To make ends meet, the pals unenthusiastically sell ice cream from a truck owned by Cho. The cute girl downstairs (Zhao Ke) pines for Cho, but he doesn't notice; instead, he moons over an on-line 'girlfriend' he's never met. Tina (Stephy Tang), who is entirely unknown to Cho, shows up unannounced on Cho's doorstep demanding to move in. It turns out that they are cousins; she is the daughter of Cho's uncle/landlord. She has returned from years spent in Taiwan to look for a job in Hong Kong.

Tina helps out with the ice cream truck business. One day she delivers ice cream confections to an interior design office, where she gets hired on the spot by the company's handsome manager Machi (Danny So, who, alas, cannot act). Tina is smitten by her new boss, but torn because she has begun to develop feelings for her cousin Cho. Meanwhile, Cho's pal Beer inexplicably has fallen head over heels in love with currency-exchange girl Mo Kiu (Sita Chan, made up to look very plain). Beer learns that Mo Kiu is in desperate need of funds; he comes up with a disastrous scheme to raise those funds for her.

Things don't go quite as planned for anyone. The movie's lurch in tone from wacky romantic comedy to grim drama is jarring. Its story relies far too often on extremely unlikely coincidences. Its final scene ends with a cheap gimmick that left this viewer greatly ticked off. The film, however, is not without its strengths, which primarily lie in the performances of Stephy Tang and Bosco Wong. The manner by which they steer their characters from mutual disdain into budding affection is remarkable.

Great to see Stephy in colorful (and sexy) com-rom Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
For me it’s great just to see Stephy again in a main role for “Love in Time” but I found this a quite good film. I liked Bosco’s love struck role, slight 60’s color psychedelic, Sammy’s ‘bad boy’, Stephy’s cool quirky charisma and for me the dodgy green ice cream van brought to mind Del Boys three wheeler (lol). Not to say Cho’s ice creams fell off the back of a lorry of course…lol. But the crew here certainly have to make ends meet. Cho rooms up with squeaky-bed-springs-womanizer Beer (Sammy) who the latter sells ice creams with Cho but keeps knocking Cho about having no gf in his life. Cho chats with women online though and in fact chats unknowingly to Tina (Stephy) using an alias named Daniel. Tina gets to like this online ‘Daniel’ quite a bit. But Cho’s ice cream sales are miserable (would beer ice cream have worked?) but Cho’s uncle keeps him safely out of debt by helping to pay to keep a roof over his head. But then Tina comes over to stay and at first Cho is irate and displeased (Beer seems to be happy as Tina’s another woman to ‘love’). But when Cho gets a phone call from his uncle who reveals Tina is Cho’s cousin and must keep Tina fed, roofed and watered (or else!), Cho changes his antagonistic attitude, tells Beer to keep his hands off her and asks Tina to help assist his ice cream selling, until Tina can get a job as an interior designer. But Cho slowly finds feelings for his ‘new’ cousin. As things improve on the ice cream front, Tina suddenly lands an interior designer job and first meeting boss Machi (Danny So), a nice decent guy wins over Tina’s heart, who she believes could be ‘Daniel’. Cho gets jealous but he assists Tina on mock dinner dates so to help Tina on her first important date with Machi. In his heart though Cho wishes Tina loved him instead and realize his inner ‘Daniel’.

LIT is funny, cute, sexy and a bad lads movie, but with fatal heart. Stephy gets to do some fun cosplay preparing for her job interview - the French maid outfit is number one, but Tina settles for the classic spectacled sexy secretary look. Machi is pleasantly surprised (as was I!). Freeze frame ending was…possibly sad. It was seriously sad though of the loss of singer Sita Chan since LIT was made. I’m not familiar with Sita who plays a kiosk girl here. But Sita’s on the making of – so beautiful. A terrible loss of a young lady as it would have been great to have seen more of Sita. Life is bigger than we think, but condolences to all who loved her.
