Comments: This has to be Oxide Pang fulfilling some contract with a film company, or something. It's not insulting or poorly done. I actually enjoyed the characters in spite of the story. The three little teeny-bop teen idols are ok, and they're cute enough, but it all adds up to a great big "so what?" Just like "All About Love", it's a exercise in making a film about how a guy can have both chicks. One has to die, of course.

Summary: Basic Love by Oxide Pang, wistfully follows the changing relationship among three friends as they navigate the joys and heartaches of youth, love, and friendship. Singer-actress Elanne Kwong (New Police Story), model-turned-actress Janice Man (Lingerie), and newcomer Rex Ho from boy band Square star as high school best friends Ling, June, and Rex. Quiet and reticent June holds a torch for Rex, but he only has eyes for Ling - who’s hiding a devastating secret of her own behind her bright and chatty exterior.

For those who enjoy your romantic tear-jerker fluff.
