  1. Pleasantly surprised to see you picking this film up to review! I remember watching this in a cinema here in Thailand and really felt it was a complete rip-off of Love Actually. It was enjoyable but it just doesn’t have a lot of substance at all.

    1. Are you in Thailand?
      Well, I watched it on the plane to Thailand, I don’t think I would have otherwise ever come across it to begin with. Plus, on planes I’ll watch a lot of things that I would otherwise never consider watching. This one was definitely more enjoyable than I expected it to be, even if substance was very much lacking. But then again I tried watching several other Thai films on the plane, a number of them I didn’t get beyond 2 or 3 minutes because they were so awful, and another one which I did manage to complete but which was so predictable and cheesy that it was really very forgettable.
      Hormones, at least, had charm.
      I hear Hormones 2 is in the plans now…

      1. Yup. I am originally from Thailand so I got to watch that during one of my holidays. I think it was one of the most popular films in cinema then so I went to check it out with my siblings what the fuss was all about… I didn’t expect it to be particularly good but like you say, at least it’s enjoyable:) One thing I find though is that the 4-story structure felt a bit forced. There is no real connection of why we need to see these four short films together, apart form that it happens one summer. At least Love Actually felt a lot more connected…
        They made a tv series of Hormones. Not sure if it is exactly the same but I heard it is very popular too.

      2. I haven’t watched Love Actually, so no comparisons there. (Though I hear that the Japanese are making a sort of Love Actually film now too.)
        Yup, I’ve heard about the TV series too…
        Yay for being from Thailand 🙂 That was the first foreign country I lived in (back when I was a toddler), and one that my family went back to the most (I hadn’t been in a while when I went this October, but my parents still go pretty much every year).
