YesAsia Editorial Description

Before becoming Hong Kong's number one auteur, Johnnie To directed The Eighth Happiness, a raucous Lunar New Year Comedy starring the one-and-only Chow Yun Fat! Chow stars as one of three oddball brothers looking for love...but unfortunately, their out-there personalities only get in the way! Eldest brother Raymond Wong Bak Ming runs a cooking show for women, and ends up tangling with a Chinese opera singer ( Fung Bo Bo) who makes a guest appearance on his show. His youngest brother Jacky Cheung is a shy cartoonist who falls in love with a sweet girl (Fennie Yuen), but to obtain her love, he must surpass a manly rival (Michael Chow), as well as interference from his own two brothers.

But the big story here is Chow Yun Fat, who turns in a surprising comic performance as a renowned player - whose mode of operation is to act gay in order to attract women! One of his targets is a beautiful but insane department store shopgirl played by Cherie Chung, who steals almost all her scenes. But it's not until Chow meets feisty Carol "Dodo" Cheng that the man truly meets his match. The stories and relationships between the three couples intertwine hilariously, leading up to a onstage spoof of Princess Chang Ping, featuring Chow Yun Fat dressed up in drag! A monster hit during its initial release, The Eighth Happiness moves fast and furiously, and features enough off-the-wall performances, hilarious situations, surprising jokes (look out for Chow Yun Fat's cameo as "Mark Gor" from A Better Tomorrow) and sheer comic energy to entertain just about anyone!

Eighth Happiness Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This movie is really funny! Chow Yun Fatt was in his element playing a campy Lothario and very well supported by a brilliant cast. Punchy one-liners were thick and fast and only real Cantonese speakers will fully appreciate the jokes. Watch out for the ending with a spoof take on the classic opera" Purple Hairpin" - absolutely hilarious and quite clever! Highly recommended.

Happiness To Me Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I have to thank Raymond Wong Bak Ming for consistently coming up with such movies. Although the theme of 3 brothers trying to find their ideal matches in life runs through all the movies, each one, however, stands out on its own.

This one shines because the on/off screen chemistry of all leading players were electrifying. My favourite scene is the finale in the form of cantonese opera Princess Chang Peng. Chow & Jacky in drag, Carol dressed as the minister (complete with beard), Petrina as the princess and Raymond, her beloved.

Get this fast in other shape or form before it's unavailable.

p/s: Leslie Cheung is not in this movie.

A CYN Comedy at it's best! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Eighth Happiness is to me, the quintessential CYN Comedy. In addition to a Stellar cast of stars such as Chow Yun Fat, Jacky Cheung, Cherie Chung, Do Do Cheng and Fung Bo Bo (of Fong Sai Yuk fame), we are also treated to a rare performance by longtime Cinema City producer Raymond Wong bak-ming, who plays the eldest of three brothers, and while he is the successful Chef and host of his hit cooking show, Mainly for Women, he is single, and has a lot of trouble with the opposite sex.
His Flamboyant Brother Lang (Chow Yun Fat) However has the opposite problem as an out of work actor who regularly dates various women, or as he calls them, the Girls from the 19 Districts, while the Youngest Brother (Jacky Cheung) is a struggling cartoonist with an innocent heart, quite the contrast from the Roles Jacky is usually noted for playing.

Late one Night due to a road accident, the phone lines near the Brothers' home malfunction, and through three chance phone calls, each of the three brothers meet three very different women, which leads into many Hilarious Romantic Encounters down the track, including Eight Star Cookies, Tai Chi Swords, Smashing both Cars and Diamond Rolexes, Raymond Wong gulping down an almost Pure Chilli Soup, Two Ping Pong Matches (as well as a scene where Chow and Raymond throw poor Cherie from one brother to the other) and a hilarious Peking Opera Finale based on Princess Chan-ping!

In addition to the great Comedic scenes and Performances, this film hosts quite a few cameos, including Michael Chow, John Shum, Karl Maka, Ringo Lam and even Mark Gor!

In Short, this film is a Must, if for no other reason than Chow's Excellent performance as the Overly Camp and Flamboyant Lang, This film is a great Companion Piece to diary of a Big Man, and is perfect for CNY or any time of the Year!

PS> While Yesasia states this film as Region 3 in the Product Summary, when I ordered it, my version was Region 0 (All Regions).

MUCH BETTER THAN EXPECTED Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Very entertaining and humorous movie with a great cast that worked well with each other. The chemistry is quite evidient here. Three brothers with distinctly different personalities and lives are all brilliantly brought together in this hilarious comedy. This film will appeal to viewers of many generations. Once again, Chow Yun Fat demonstrates his boundless realm of talent and ability to adapt to any character presented to him. - SKL
