我老婆係明星 (My Wife is a Superstar) (Blu-ray release 2016-6-23) – an unknown actress (played by Annie Liu) gets the chance to take a leading role in a new movie.  For her career she keeps her marriage a secret.  Her husband happens to be a paparazzi, who is given the job of exposing her marriage and her husband.

This sounds like a perfect recipe for a really good comedy, but the movie is not funny, stupid and boring.  Except for some initial attempts to have a little comedy via exaggerated acting and/or stupidity, there are not many jokes to be found.  Failing at comedy, it does not take itself seriously either.  The couple does far less than the absolute minimum to protect the secret marriage.  This alone destroys any believability whatsoever.  If not for Annie Liu I would not have endured this movie.
