This Lau Ching-wan / Anita Yuen romantic comedy is quite enjoyable from beginning to end. Lau plays a screenwriter/director, while Anita plays an actress. These two obviously love each other, but just can't get together for one reason or another. Along the way, they engage in various relationships with other suitors, and the audience is left to wonder if they will ever just get together and be happy. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two leads, as well as the humorous film references present. Francis Ng has a hilarious cameo as a popular, spoiled actor with an oversized ego. The film's best sight gag is Francis' take on Jimmy Wang Yu's classic martial arts film "The One-Armed Swordsman." "The Golden Girls" is not a great film, but it is very fun and the wonderful leads make it a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half.
