After I Love Hong Kong, Alls well ends well 2011 is the other big lunar new year comedy from Hong Kong for this year. Its another entry in the Raymond Wong's long running Alls well series that has a chequered history to say the least. The 2011 entry stars Louis Koo, Donnie Yen, Carina Lau and Cecilia Cheung and was directed by Chan Hing Kai and Chun Siu Jan.
The plot revolves around ex makeup school rivals Donnie and Louis coming together to work for a Chinese cosmetics company called Beauty, Donnie as a salesman and Louis on the board. Donnie is pining for his first girlfriend Carina Lau, while Louis who acts gay to get away with massaging women, becomes attracted to frumpy (Yeah right!) Cecilia Cheung, thats it really, lots of other stars pop in and out, most notably Chapman To as super rich Mr Smoothie, and there really isn't much more to it.
One of the main jokes of the movie is the idea of Louis and especially Donnie playing cosmetics experts, why this is such a joke considering how much make up they use is lost on me, they wear more than most women!
