YesAsia Editorial Description
In addition to Josie Ho playing the star's foul-mouthed manager, 3D Naked Ambition also features hilarious cameos by Sandra Ng, Charlene Choi, Ronald Cheng, Wong Jing, Kato Taka and Louis Koo (also a co-producer on the film) in his most hilarious performance in recent years.
With an over-domineering girlfriend and a failing writing career, Wai Man (Chapman To) decides to inject some excitement into his life by arranging a special "AV tour" in Japan with his friends. When the lead actor quits during a pornography shoot they're attending, Wai Man is forced to take over as the lead actor. The film unexpectedly becomes a huge hit, turning Wai Man into the most popular male actor in the adult video world. Soon, Wai Man – reborn as Mario Ozawa - is working with the biggest actresses in the business and making big money for his manager (Josie Ho). However, Mario's career is threatened when a hotter rival (Louis Koo) appears on the scene.
This edition features the 2D version of the film. It includes making of, deleted scenes, "AV knowledge" pop quizzes and trailers. It also comes with a 3D photo card.

Wyman’s (Chapman T0) life is overwhelmed by his woman. This situation does not only exist in their careers, but also in bed. As a Graduate in Literature, Wyman survives as an adult section columnist for a local newspaper, but with the adult section being scrapped, he loses his last resort to a living. An idea strikes the unemployed Wyman. Men like him, who have grown up watching Japanese Avs, can actually invest into making one, evolving from being an audience to a producer. Wyman’s crazy idea is instantly welcomed by his friends’ enthusiasm and investment. They have Ms. Shodaiko Hatoyama (Josie o), a veteran of the sex industry in Japan, to act as their correspondent. The intended exciting on-site shooting has unecpectedly become a forced “virgin” show of Wyman. But what’s even more unexpected is, with him being abused by the porn actress and showing his true feelings in the AV, Wyman “shoots” into fame overnight.!!!

Professional Review of "3D Naked Ambition (2014) (2D Version) (DVD) (Special Edition) (Hong Kong Version)"
This professional review refers to 3D Naked Ambition (2014) (2D Version) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)
The current trend of raucous, foul-mouthed Hong Kong comedies inspired by Pang Ho Cheung's hit Vulgaria continues with the category III rated 3D Naked Ambition which follows Chapman To as an unlikely AV (Adult Video) star making his way in the Japanese industry. The film was directed by Lee Kung Lok and co-written and produced by HK veteran Chan Hing Ka, who's worked on everything from A Better Tomorrow and the original 2003's Naked Ambition through to more recent fare like The Midas Touch and the 2011 and 2012 instalments of All's Well Ends Well. Along with the popular To, the film also stars Josie Ho (Dream House), plus a bevy of real AV actresses, including Aso Nozomi, Tatsumi Yui, Yume Kana and Okita Anri, all of whom work hard to provide the film with its most obvious selling points.
The film opens with Chapman To as Wai Man, a struggling writer of erotic fiction who lives in the shadow of his far more successful girlfriend Cecilia (Candy Yuen) in Hong Kong. Along with his fellow AV-obsessed friends, he takes a trip to Japan to try and make money by shooting their own pornographic film with a famous actress (Tatsumi Yui), aided by ex-pat Hong-Konger Shodaiko (Josie Ho), only to find himself reluctantly having to step in front of the camera to perform. His submissive, less than manly showing unexpectedly makes the film a huge hit with the ladies, and he decides to stay in Japan, managed by Shodaiko and taking on the name Mario Ozawa (no doubt a nod to top AV actress Maria Ozawa). His unique style and the reversal of male and female roles soon make him one of the most popular AV actors in the business, and all seems to be going well, until Cecilia decides to join him in Japan and a rival from Hong Kong (Louis Koo) tries to steal his crown.
3D Naked Ambition is very much old school category III nonsense rather than sharp foul mouthed Vulgaria style wordplay, and though it does take a few vague stabs at satire and social commentary for the most part its mind is well and truly in the gutter. Unashamedly messy, chaotic and anecdotal, the film very rarely makes any sense, bouncing its way between gags and wacky set pieces and throwing in a constant stream of Hong Kong and Japanese pop culture references. For fans of this kind of film, it's generally pretty funny, and shows more creativity and rude imagination than other recent genre outings like Hardcore Comedy with a number of genuinely side-splitting scenes - in particular, its cameos work very well, including Japanese AV vet Taka Kato, Charlene Choi, Ronald Cheng, and Golden Chicken herself, Sandra Ng. Special mention has to go to Louis Koo, who here puts in one of his funniest appearances for some time, stealing most of his scenes with dignity-free charm.
Anyone watching the film for the AV angle probably won't be disappointed, and will be glad to hear that there's a very high nudity quotient throughout, most of it being amusingly gratuitous. As usual with this kind of film, there's very little attempt at anything erotic, the sex scenes being played for laughs at Chapman To's expense - as a result, the film has a kind of innocent sauciness and never gets sleazy or misogynistic. This sits comfortably with the slapstick and silliness, and Lee Kung Lok directs with enthusiasm and a cheerful lack of pretension, keeping the film bouncing along at a fun pace.
Unsurprisingly, the film isn't quite so successful when it tries to get a bit more serious, though thankfully this isn't too often. Lee does try to inject a little heart and humanity into the proceedings, via Wai Man's troubled relationship with Cecilia, plus his flirtations and moments with the various AV starlets, and the film employs this to make a few observations on male/female roles. However, this falls flat, mainly due to the fact that To is clearly not the cute, weak-willed type that the Mario Ozawa gag revolves around him being, swearing and cursing his way through in his usual fashion. Without much in the way of character development or any real conviction in its emotional content or subplots, it's hard not to see the film as fairly straightforward wish-fulfilment for its target audience.
For the right viewers, this doesn't really matter of course, and 3D Naked Ambition delivers on its modest promise in terms of lewd gags and copious nudity. Despite it being scattershot and uneven, the laughs are certainly there, and with Chapman To and a great cast giving the material a lift, it's one of the funnier low brow Hong Kong comedies of late.

This customer review refers to 3D Naked Ambition (2014) (2D Version) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
"3D Naked Ambition" opens with Wai Man (Chapman To) losing his job as a writer of erotic fiction for a downmarket Hong Kong newspaper (his editor gets transferred to the religion beat!). At loose ends, Wai Man persuades his buddies to join him in a scheme to produce Japanese AV films that are geared to the tastes of losers like them.
The pals journey to Tokyo to meet Shodaiko (Josie Ho), who serves as their link to the AV business. When their male AV performer walks out over their heavy-handed direction, the buddies push Wai Man into taking his place. Wai Man's obvious discomfort at playing this role has an unexpected result -- women viewers of the finished film embrace his submissive personality. Wai Man's AV becomes an international sensation and Shodaiko entices him to return to Japan to reprise his performance in a series of videos that spoof a variety of AV genres.
Setting aside the sleazy context, the film's opening act effectively mines rich veins of humor in situations that were ripe for a spoof. Unfortunately, once the film's premise is established in these scenes, it has nowhere to go. Consequently, what we see for the rest of the movie are a series of increasingly strained and improbable gambits to reach ever lower for laughs.
A bigger problem is that we really cannot set aside the sleazy context. The script attempts to have it both ways on the moral issues. Shodaiko reveals that, at a young age, she was sold into sexual slavery. Life has turned her into a woman easily manipulated by abusive men. We get a glimpse into violent yakuza influence in the AV world and girls being thrust into performing acts they dislike. Yet as quickly as the movie hints at these issues, it brushes them aside in search of the next crude belly laugh.
Director Lee Kung Lok, with his delightful film "My Mother Is A Belly Dancer", once showed great promise. With his most recent films -- the atrocious "Microsex Office" and now "3D Naked Ambition" -- he has settled for hack work.
