Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While it's not a game-changer, writer-director Ho-Cheung Pang's sharp rom-com, Love in the Buff, is a realistic portrayal of modern love in all its complexity and pain."
‑ Anita Li, Toronto Star
"A refreshingly authentic romantic comedy about the tradeoffs people must make in their relationships, careers and lifestyles."
‑ Maggie Lee, Variety
"Winning romantic comedy of Hong Kong lovers unable to commit once they move to Beijing. Strong sequel to the cult favorite Love in a Puff."
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"A romantic comedy that is as interesting for its glimpse into contemporary urban China as it is for the charisma of its leads."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"Modern love shifts from Hong Kong to Beijing in the successful sequel to Love in a Puff, a natural, light and convincing rom com very similar to the original Hong Kong hit."
‑ Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
"A relentlessly entertaining romancer."
‑ Edmund Lee, Screen International
"Unlikely to resonate with Western audiences, who have more than enough sentimental English-language romantic comedies to keep themselves occupied."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Buff gels into a surprisingly moving look at the machinations of the heart."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
"The film has an exhilarating tossed-off quality that characterized many of the most entertaining works of the French New Wave."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
