You might wonder why such a popular film never made much of an impression beyond China. One reason may be that a majority of the humor is based on Mandarin-language wordplay, which English subtitles cannot possibly convey. (I watched an import DVD and didn't get any of the jokes.) Perhaps as a result, it played at only a handful of film festivals. Still, it looks snazzy and is packed with action, as the trailer attests, and the response must have been an encouraging sign for local filmmakers.
It's no surprise, then, that the cast has ben reunited for another comic adventure, entitled Wedding. The plot, as reported by crienglish.com, is about "a girl named Xiao Tao [who] is dumped by her fiancé on their wedding day. Feeling disappointed by love and marriage, she begins taking out insane revenge against various men. Eventually she meets a man called Lao Guo, and everything changes." Crazy Stone's co-writer, Zhang Cheng, takes on the directing reins; filming is underway and Wedding is expected to be released by the end of the year. I'm hoping the comedy translates a bit more, otherwise I'll have to start learning Mandarin.
