重口味 (Hardcore Comedy) (Blu-ray release 2013-10-23) is a Hong Kong comedy movie.  It is marketed as a movie about prostitution, drugs, and gambling.  Its Chinese title means it is supposed to be extreme.  However, only the first of the three short stories in the movie really deserves to be called extreme.  The first story is about two college nerds living near a bunch of prostitutes.  It is a complete mess so there is no point in summarizing the story.  It shows many scantily dressed women in various forms of costumes including cosplay and SM, several scenes of male masturbation, a few perverted scenes, and the boys dress up in ridiculous superhero costumes in which one of them wears an Intel CPU Fan and a floppy drive to fight the police.

The second story is a mini road movie in which the protagonist delivers drugs to different places and meet different people.  The different characters and even the police are somewhat crazy but it is only slightly comedic.  The third story is a really normal story in which the protagonist is asked to kill somebody to pay for his gambling debt.  Preparing to die, he decides to find the woman whom he loved many years ago.  This story is relatively pleasant to watch, but there is nothing extreme about it.
