The only Hong Kong film this Christmas, MARRIAGE WITH A LIAR (FUN CHIN SI OI) although was under assault from foreign films performed well after a week in release. Two nights ago a celebration was held. Director Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum) along with lead Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Law Chung Him, Carl Yeung Chi Yiu, Shum Chi Ming, King Kong, and Timmy Hung Tin Ming attended. They celebrated with red wine. As for the box office performance, Chau Sau Na and Law Chung Him said that if the box office broke 10 million, they would appear in swimwear and go for a polar bear swim.
In the film Chau Sau Na and Yeung Chi Yiu had many intimate and sexy scenes. Two nights ago Carol said that this performance was already her bottom line as she felt that she could be sexy without nudity. Carol was very nervous as she denied talks of her "poking out" in the film, during the shoot she used tape and wore a tee shirt underneath. She believed it was an illusion with the lights. She also said that before the shoot the team inspected for her. She joked that they were the luckiest ones. As for Chau Sau Na's sexy performance, Carol said that Sister Na was the first lead actor. This was her first film so she was a junior to her veteran. She also said that sexiness in film was not about how much clothes was worn, which would only ruin a movie. Chau Sau Na did not mind that Carol calling her a veteran. She said that she has only been in the business for two years but thanked everyone for recognizing her. She truly did not dare to live up to the title of "veteran" though.
