YesAsia Editorial Description

Having directed some of Hong Kong's most memorable comedic films, including several Stephen Chow titles, Jeff Lau has long established himself as a tour de force in comedy. In 2014, the director teamed up with Vivian Hsu and He Jiong, one of China's premier comedy personalities, to make Lock Him Up Tie Me Down, a romantic comedy with a dash of mystery.

Tiffany (Vivian Hsu) holds one of the world's tougher jobs: she's a stay-at-home wife. Her job becomes infinitely tougher when a person named Hawk (He Jiong) breaks into her home to inform her that he's kidnapped her husband, and the only way her husband would be safely returned is if she poses as his wife for the next 168 hours. As Tiffany engages in a battle of wits with her new fake husband, she discovers that there might be more to the kidnapping than she initially thought.

168 = Pathway to prosperity ... and laughs Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Pretty Tiffany (Vivian Hsu) is the perfect loving wife to her husband Kwok Fu (Wang Xue Bing). One day her perfect life is disrupted when the mysterious Fok (He Jiong) bursts into Tiffany's home claiming to have kidnapped Kwok Fu. He threatens to kill Kwok Fu unless Tiffany agrees to Fok's strange request: She must pose as his wife for the next week. To save her beloved hubby, Tiffany can only agree to this mad scheme. Yet Tiffany soon begins concocting schemes of her own, as she seeks to figure out just whom this Fok character is, where he is keeping Kwok Fu, and how she can manage to free her husband.

Director Jeff Lau's "Lock Me Up, Tie Him Down" (a.k.a. Perfect Fake Wife 168) proves to be a cleverly plotted and slickly executed dark comedy, in which we find mystery wrapped within mystery and the outcome arrives as an ingenious (and unexpectedly warmhearted) surprise. As usual, Lau brings great energy -- and a colorfully comic-bookish look -- to his comedy.

The cast is superb. Vivian Hsu looks ravishingly lovely and performs with a conviction I'd never previously seen from her. He Jiong is no mere stock villain; he lends his character a real depth. Film veterans Frankie Chan and Kara Hui are wildly funny in cameo appearances as Tiffany's parents and Harriet Yeung shines as Tiffany's nosy, snarky neighbor.

Strangely, for a film directed by someone of Jeff Lau's stature, it seems that "Lock Me Up, Tie Him Down" was released without much acclaim and quickly disappeared from theatres. This truly is a shame. Audiences should not miss this hugely entertaining little comic gem.
