    Feb 6, 2019

    It’s all very pleasant as a celeb-spotting exercise though it does remind you of the much better films these stars have already been in, productions you should be watching instead.

  • Beauty On Duty!

    Feb 22, 2015

    The main problem with ‘Beauty On Duty’ is that it’s essentially a distillation of the legion of unfunny moments that Wong Jing has created throughout his long career.

  • Cook Up A Storm

  • The Spy Dad

    Jun 1, 2015
