Watch Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2 - Alternative Versions.
Over post-it notes exchanged across the office windows of two adjacent
towers in the heart of Hong Kong's financial district, Louis Koo's
dashingly handsome but hopelessly philandering wealth management CEO
Cheung Shen Ran pursued the pretty and vivacious financial analyst Chen
Zixin. But Zixin was also simultaneously courted by the handsome
architect Fang Qihong (Daniel Wu), who was dependable, faithful,
committed and basically the exact opposite of Shen Ran.
Teasing their audience right to the very end, the dynamic writing-
directing duo of Johnnie To and Wai Kar Fai eventually let their female
protagonist pick the safer choice. It is one year later where this
sequel opens that we are reunited with Shen Ran and Zixin, the latter
just weeks away from her impending nuptials with Qihong. The former?
Well, he's as much a flirt as before, but as we find out soon after, he
is actually still very much hung up on Zixin, even going to the extent
of renting the apartment which she used to stay.
Johnnie To's success in his home territory has always been with
crowd-pleasing rom-coms like 'Needing Me, Needing You' and 'Love On A
Diet'. This sequel, as well as its predecessor, fits in squarely in
many ways it is frothy, light-hearted, and filled with zany moments
that few like To/ Kar Fai will dare to pull off and do so with aplomb.
And indeed, To establishes this with a hilarious opening sequence that
deserves praise in itself for being able to juggle so many characters
at the same time.
There is Zixin, who is trying out her wedding dress in a bridal shop
and waiting for her brother Paul (Vic Chou) to arrive. Paul is caught
in a jam because Yang Yang Yang (Miriam Yeung) is terrible at parallel
parking her Ferrari and has been trying to squeeze her vehicle into a
tight spot along a narrow street. Yang Yang wishes for a handsome guy
to offer his help and (voila!) Shen Ran pops up by her window. It
just so happens that both are in the area to look for office space for
their respective companies, and when Yang Yang sees Shen Ran in the
window of the opposite building, she waves excitedly to him and
gestures for him to meet downstairs for coffee but really Shen Ran is
gesturing instead to another hot(ter) Eurasian girl in the same
building as Yang Yang. Before that misunderstanding is sorted out
downstairs, Zixin throws herself at Yang Yang and begs her for a job
because the latter is apparently acclaimed as a 'Goddess of Stocks'.
And before the day is over, Paul would have made Yang Yang's
acquaintance in the same way Shen Ran did earlier, but Yang Yang would
also have hooked up with Shen Ran.
It's a lot to keep up with, and it is firmly to To's credit that his
audience remains engaged and not bewildered by the end of this flurry
of happenings. Oh, and by the way, if you're wondering where Qihong is
in the midst of all this, well he remains unfortunately in Suzhou on a
project and sits out the Tennessee Waltz of changing partners. Yes,
instead of five characters fighting for each other's attention and
affections, there is really only four. Wai, who co- wrote the script
with original scribe Ryker Chan and Yu Xi, chooses to let the audience
favourite character, Qihong, sit out most of the movie to its own
demise, because none of the ones we spend much of the time with and
that includes the French-spouting Qihong, who comes off less romantic
than pretentious are anything near endearing. On the contrary, Shen
Ran, Zixin and Yang Yang are fickle and capricious, so we find it
hard-pressed to root for any of them.
Short of a deeper emotional connection with any of the main characters,
we are left instead to indulge in their whimsicalities and
thankfully, there are a couple of fairly entertaining sequences here.
One of these highlights sees the introduction of a clairvoyant octopus
named Genie (clearly influenced by the similarly gifted Paul the
Octopus) which Yang Yang and Paul (haha get it?) rescue from a
seafood restaurant in Sai Kung, a self-aware narrative element meant
that references Zixin's pet toad in the previous film. Another riotous
sequence has Shen Ran and his loyal effeminate assistant (Lam Suet)
scrambling to keep the former's bevy of flight-attendant girlfriends in
separate office rooms who appear simultaneously at his company to
celebrate his birthday after Hurricane Sandy grounds all U.S.-bound air
It is in that same screwball spirit that Wai wraps the shenanigans up
with Shen Ran scaling the very skyscraper Qihong built for Zixin in a
last-ditch attempt to declare his love for her on her wedding day
itself. We won't spoil any surprise here, but suffice to say that
besides Zixin, Yang Yang's own love triangle with Paul and Shen Ran
also gets its resolution by the time the credits roll. Is it as
poignant as the conclusion the last time round? Hardly, but like we
said, this is all about the laughs and less about anything meaningful
or poignant. It still is fun hanging out with such a high-powered
ensemble for two hours, which is one of the pleasures that this sequel
But to answer the inevitable question whether it is necessary? It's
probably clear by now that it isn't, motivated less by creative
instinct than by commercial imperative. Yes, it's no secret that 'Don't
Go Breaking My Heart' was one of To and Wai's biggest hits in recent
years, not least for the star-studded cast, and this sequel makes no
apologies that it is simply out to entertain, shallow and artificial as
the emotions it asks us to believe in are. It is a far lesser movie
than its predecessor no doubt, but those looking for a superficially
pleasing outing should be satisfied.
