The Lion Roars

Likable Hong Kong stars Louis Koo and Cecilia Cheung play a battling couple in this handsome 2002 costume comedy set in medieval China: he's a mild-mannered poet, she's a domineering shrew who spanks him for carousing with his buddies. Director Joe Ma doesn't pretend this is anything more than a silly entertainment with zany slapstick and topical one-liners, but he adroitly shifts between daffiness and sentimentality. In Cantonese with subtitles. 100 min.
