Actor-turned-director Eric Tsang Chi-wai spins this affable romantic comedy featuring Hong Kong diva Anita Mui Yim-fong. The two young sisters of the Mui clan are chafing under family tradition, which stipulates that the younger daughters can only marry when the elder daughter is married. Unfortunately, the eldest daughter, Tai-heung (Mui), is an ill-tempered, shrewish lass who seems well on her way to spinsterhood. Their only hope at a normal love life is jilted nerd Tsang Jo-choy (Tsang) who is looking to marry to spite an ex-girlfriend. Tai-heung grudgingly agrees to get married if and only if three humiliating conditions are met, which would all but rob Tsang of his manhood. Tsang agrees and appears as a beautiful bride during the wedding.
