Men Suddenly in Black (2003)

Screenwriter and director Edmond Pang Ho-Cheung crafts a sophisticated adult comedy for his second film. Eric Tsang Chi-Wai produces and stars in a story about a group of four married men who want to cheat on their wives. The four couples are at different stages of their marriages, from newlywed to seasoned veteran.

Director and cast do a fine job skewering the complex dualities of the sexes towards adultery and its consequences. Wildly funny and deeply poignant, I loved this movie. Tsang along with Jordan Chan Siu-Chun and Chapman To Man-Chat do great jobs with their characters, but it is the 4 actresses playing the wives who steal the show and make this movie as great as it is. Teresa Mo Sun-Kwan shines as Tsang's attorney wife.
