Started out alright, but fell into a slump...

I had the chance to sit down and watch the 1987 Hong Kong comedy "The Happy Bigamist" (aka "Yi wu liang qi") here late in 2020. I hadn't heard about the movie prior to sitting down to watch it, so I didn'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.

Whereas "The Happy Bigamist" 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.

Sure, "The Happy Bigamist" 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.

The 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 shouldn't take too seriously throughout the course of the movie.

My rating of "The Happy Bigamist" is a very mediocre five out of ten stars.

Stock romcom

HAPPY BIGAMIST is a stock Hong Kong romantic comedy set in a single apartment for the most part with a cast of just four lead characters. It's worth a look if you're a fan of any of the cast, but it's very traditional and unexciting so it's not one to go out of your way to track down. Anthony Chan plays the usual harassed guy living with two rival women under his roof, and nominal star Kenny Bee doesn't even show up until over the halfway mark, where he becomes the lead character. Anita Mui is almost unrecognisable behind those glasses but makes the best impression.
