YesAsia Editorial Description

Follow the ups and downs of Hong Kong's new gigolo king with hit erotic comedy The Gigolo! The directorial debut of Au Cheuk Man, the film stars Dominic Ho (Lan Kwai Fong 2) as an up-and-coming gigolo who climbs up the career ladder due to his natural talent for pleasing his female clientele. In the tradition of the Hong Kong erotic films of the 1990s, Gigolo is a wild genre-bending ride that is offers raunchy humor, over-the-top sex and even shocking violence. In addition to Dominic Ho, the film also co-stars former Miss Hong Kong Candy Yuen in a daring performance as one of his clients and popular model Jeana Ho (Due West) as his love interest.

High school student Feng (Dominic Ho) has been mocked at school for years for having an unusually large natural gift. When an altercation with a school bully leads to him being expelled, Feng turns to his aunt's gigolo bar to make a living. After learning how to use his hardware from a retired star gigolo (Sin Lap Man), Feng quickly becomes the new king of the gigolos. However, he begins to rethink the source of his newfound fortune when he falls for film director Chloe (Jeana Ho).

- Making Of

Fung looks like a super-heartthrob and was bon with a special endowment, making him the high school idol. He was expelled from school when he was caught fighting on campus. When his mom, the sole provider of his family with her poultry business, had to stop working due to her back problems, Fung decides to support his family financially. And from that moment, his life takes on a tumultuous change….

Fung starts out as a janitor at his cousin Hung house of male prostitution, but his other services are demanded by regular customer Yoyo. Desperate for money, Fung cannot resist the “$10,000 per night” offer and tries his best, but he makes his share of rookie mistakes and embarrassments. It also doesn’t help that that star gigolo Chris tries to jeopardize his ambitions at every turn, causing him shame and frustration.

Professional Review of "The Gigolo (2015) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version)"

March 18, 2015

The Gigolo opens with a fleeting glimpse of a massive prosthetic penis, so obviously this shouldn't be your destination if you're seeking cinematic class. Likewise, if you're looking for a serious examination of male prostitution, this Category III drama shouldn't be shortlisted. Despite offering a lead character who earnestly questions his place in the sex trade, The Gigolo is merely a variation on male fantasy fodder like early nineties films Gigolo and Whore or Hong Kong Gigolo – both of which actually get namedropped by a character named Abson, the "King of the Gigolos", as required viewing for understanding the trade. The fact that Abson is played by former Category III regular Pal Sin makes that particular moment in The Gigolo doubly meta but that's very nearly the extent of the film's cleverness. This is merely old tropes given new style – early nineties sleaze dressed up with flashy Lan Kwai Fong club beats and male eyeliner. You know what this movie is, so don't expect anything else.

Lan Kwai Fong veteran Dominic Ho stars as Ho Kui-Fung, a well-hung young man who starts working at the gigolo club owned by his cousin Hung (Elena Kong) after being expelled from school. Fung starts as a janitor but his innocent looks make him a favorite of club regulars, including Yoyo (Hazel Tong) and Michelle (Candy Yuen), the latter of whom brings Fung to her yacht for a many-housewives-on-a-single-gigolo action. Fung feels demeaned but after some training from Absom, he overcomes his insecurities to become the best gigolo EVER. Seriously, he soon has the hard-to-please Yoyo eating out of his palm, plus Michelle now wants him exclusively. This turnabout is more than skills-oriented – there's a mental component too. As he's taught by Absom, "Win a woman's heart and you win the world." Apparently, being an amazing gigolo is a state of mind that imparts you limitless power over females. It's kind of like "the power of positive thinking" except you use your tongue and your 12-inch member. Boys, these are life lessons.

The film eventually introduces a serious love interest in the form of Chloe (Jeana Ho), who's directing a film-within-the-film called King of Gigolos. Chloe casts Fung in her movie not knowing that he's really a gigolo, leading to the film's third act and plenty of plot hole-riddled melodrama. Unfortunately, this love story doesn't qualify as even remotely interesting. Director Au Cheuk-Man's screenplay offers only perfunctory emotions, and has much more success with its over-the-top gags, like Fung's training in the gigolo arts (which includes literally playing a woman like a piano) or the coming-from-offscreen sprays of female ejaculation. The inadvertent laughs are cool too; one mid-film death scene is supposed to be affecting but features terrible acting. Also, a scene where Chloe's father introduces Fung to his extensive knife collection is ripe for giggles. Au's even-keeled direction can cause confusion; some jokes are obvious, but sometimes it's hard to tell when the director is aiming for seriousness or satire. Either way, it's unlikely that the target audience cares about director intent.

The sex is what it is. The film's softcore couplings are actually not that risqué, minus a lengthy scene involving former Miss Hong Kong contestant Candy Yuen that offers expected nudity and unexpected bodily fluids. The forever-teasing Jeana Ho stays wrapped-up, however, so those expecting her "breakthrough" should dial back expectations. Dominic Ho earns his wings in the lead role; his acting isn’t noteworthy, but he's a solid sport who has the looks and sly smarm that suit the role. He's kind of scrawny but bishonen are in, so there you go. Otherwise, this is tricked-up Skinemax fodder, all the way to the over-the-top climax, which actually surprises in how the filmmakers recycle erotic thriller tropes with such straight-faced gravity. All hope for this film kind of dies with the very first techno beat, but as a sometimes-funny, always-stupid update to an infamous Hong Kong Cinema genre, The Gigolo rates OK. If you get a kick out of horny montages set to songs with lyrics like, "Push me on the table" and "Is it you?" then this is your film. Hell, they probably had you at the prosthetic penis.
