In this lighthearted Chinese comedy, a hapless entrepreneur has a streak of bad luck until he opens a sex toy shop in a conservative neighbourhood and discovers the repressed patrons are more willing to shell out for his adult wares than he initially anticipates. While the subtitled film may attract art-house moviegoers, the laughs are fairly broad and the characters benign enough for a Sunday afternoon audience as Australian-born filmmaker Sam Voutas lends the Beijing comedy a keen Western sensibility.
