    This 2004 remake is perhaps inferior to the 1996 original film, but is unexpectedly solid due to its skillful performances. Chelsom's direction is decent and more impressive than the original's, as are dancing numbers.

  1. A warm-hearted and understated entertainment that's blissfully free of the heavy-handed crudity and other elements that have ravaged 21st-century Hollywood comedy.

    Do yourself a favor and rent the 1996 original from Japan instead.
  3. A remarkably ill-advised remake.
