Sixth feature by the prolific Pang carries echoes of his third, 2004's "Beyond Our Ken," which also concerned a distaff revenge scheme. New pic begins promisingly, with Hong Kong police sergenat Yip (Johnnie To regular Simon Yam) interrogating a suspected peeping tom, who informs Yip he was eavesdropping on a women's restroom where details of a sinister anti-male plot were being hatched. When the suspect subsequently retracts his statement following a meeting with a female officer, the initially skeptical Yip does some further investigating. This leads to several darkly amusing scenes in which Yip becomes suspicious of every woman he encounters, including his wife. Too much of the pic, however, unfolds as a straight-faced procedural, making for wild tonal inconsistencies and a sluggish third act.
Director Pang Ho-cheung once read a foreign news report about girls going to the washroom together to plot the killing of a man, an idea which gives birth to this paranoid and suspenseful thriller-comedy about the war of the sexes. A police officer reveals a shocking secret about women: they are plotting to kill all men and, he is, of course, on the hit list. In this fusion of horror and humour, there are no such things as nice guys or bad boys, men are only categorised as bad and very bad.
Pun is a quiet poor girl from Taiwan who marries and settles down in Hong Kong. However, her marriage ends all too soon and she is separated from her husband, Kwan. One day, Kwan goes missing and the police looks for Pun to record a statement. Sergeant Tsim is a policeman who happens to be involved in an earlier case where Kwan was caught for peeping in the washroom. Kwan had earlier explained to Sergeant Tsim that he had discovered an incredible secret - a lot of women were planning secretly to destroy men and they were exchanging their ideas in the washroom. Sergeant Tsim also finds the whole case bizarre because whenever he finds some evidence, they go missing! Sergeant Tsim soon develops feelings for Pun and the two discover that Kwan was killed because he knew too much about the secret organisation.
