失戀急讓 (Temporary Family) (Blu-ray release 2014-10-29) is a Hong Kong comedy about four people who invest in a luxury penthouse, hoping to earn money quickly.  Of course just after they did that the property market turned down.  It does a fairly good job to illustrate the ridiculous but really common thinking in Hong Kong that having a property is more important than having true love.  There are actually less jokes than expected, but a lot of cameos show up, even including a real life politician.  Even though both the lead actor and actress are ideally suited for comedies, this movie is only marginally above average.
