Even spliced superheroes have to deal with everyday problems in the lighter-than-air Hong Kong romantic comedy “Mr. & Mrs. Incredible.” Helmed by actor-director Vincent Kok and featuring his regular thesping cohorts Louis Koo and Sandra Ng, pic has a whimsical charm that never lets up. The perfect date movie for happily married auds, the pic found less favor with Hong Kong’s youth market, garnering a respectable but unspectacular $1 million after three weeks.

In a feudal Chinese village, laser-eyed Gazer Warrior (Koo) and his olfactorily empowered bride, Aroma Woman (Ng), have retired from fighting crime to enjoy small-town life. With tranquility taking its toll on Gazer’s libido, the pair attend a local kung fu contest to reignite their old passions, but Aroma Woman feels threatened when hubby pays attention to winsome fight fan Phoenix Bleu (Li Qin). Script’s innocuous manner is perfectly complemented by the leads’ affectionate chemistry, recalling that of William Powell and Myrna Loy. Kok’s sitcom-style helming gives his stars space to strut their stuff, and he has fun with the kung fu tournament subplot. Lensing is a colorful delight; other tech credits are adequate.
