“I had the chance to sit down and watch the 1987 Hong Kong comedy u0026quot;The Happy Bigamistu0026quot; (aka u0026quot;Yi wu liang qiu0026quot;) here late in 2020. I hadnu0026#39;t heard about the movie prior to sitting down to watch it, so I didnu0026#39;t know what I was in for here, nor did I have any expectations to the movie. I know it was a Hong Kong comedy and it had Anita Mui on the cast list, and that was about it.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhereas u0026quot;The Happy Bigamistu0026quot; starts out being enjoyable and funny, the movie quickly loses its moment and drift around the midpoint, where director Anthony Chan seemed to go into an auto-pilot mode. And the movie never really bounced back or gained enough momentum to make it up past that slump. It was the storyline that simply grew repetitive and mundane at that point.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSure, u0026quot;The Happy Bigamistu0026quot; was watchable, however this was hardly a movie that I will be watching a second time, as the storyline just simply barely managed to cut it for the first viewing.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe acting performances in the movie were adequate. Being a 1987 movie, it does bear witness to the particular style and era of comedy movies to make it out of the Hong Kong cinema, for better or worse. So there is a fair amount of things that you shouldnu0026#39;t take too seriously throughout the course of the movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMy rating of u0026quot;The Happy Bigamistu0026quot; is a very mediocre five out of ten stars.”
