Other reviewers are just looking too deeply...
If you are just as baffled by the comments here as I was - there's a reason for that. You, like me, enjoy the silly, slapstick, over-the-top, incredibly goofy type of Hong Kong flick that this is. It amazed me that anyone watched this movie expecting some sort of high brow, high energy action flick. It's called "Anna in Kung Fu Land" for American audiences so I took that as a HINT. Expecting THIS MOVIE to be anything other than goofy would be like expecting "It's a Drink, It's a Bomb" to be a high-drama crime thriller.
Is this a romantic picture? No. Is this an action picture? No. Is this an incredibly goofy comedy? YES. If you enjoy movies on par with City Hunter and the recent spate of Korean romantic comedies (like "My Sassy Girl" and the definite rip-off "Marrying Schoolgirl") then this is definitely worth a look.
Don't look for high concept, don't look for high drama, don't look for believability or get annoyed when something is "illogical". Check your brain at the door and enjoy the goofiness.
