In ancient times... both humans and our ancestors were apes. When the land changed... some apes were forced to live in the sea. Their legs were of no use... and evolved into fishtails. Mermaids and humans should have coexisted side by side. But ever since ancient times... whenever humans spotted us... they hunted us down. Since then... we have stayed away from humans. However, the more advanced they get, the more violent they've become.

What's more important than money?
-What if there wasn't even a drop of clean water... or a breath of fresh air on this planet? No amount of money would keep you alive.
Do you understand what you're talking about?
-It's you who doesn't understand. That's why I'm here, right in front of you.
===
As are you. We're two of a kind.
-No, we're not the same. We have different traits.
Different in what way?
-The difference between a nobleman and a lowlife. Much like how a pauper... can dress up as a prince... but inside, he's still a pauper!

If there were only one minute left in your life... what would you do?
-I wouldn't do anything other than look at you.
===
There's nothing I haven't seen. Stock market crash in 1987, financial crisis in 1997, SARS in 2002. I survived it all. I'm tough!
===
Being invincible is lonely
So lonely
Being invincible is empty
So empty
Standing alone
On a high mountaintop
The cold wind blows
No one understands
My loneliness
Is this the highest mountain
In the world?
Or are there places higher
Than the sky?
Are there places in the world
Higher than this mountain?
But I cannot find one person
More loving than you are
No one can compare to you
There are always higher mountains
True love is like the sky
Love is higher

Mermaids. A new species. If we can extract their DNA, we'll control the most advanced biotechnology. It's a huge opportunity. You should know that!
- But...
Money! Making money! Don't you want money?
-Yes, I want money! But there must be a limit. We can't go against our moral conscience!
Conscience? Earth's welfare and world peace will rely on you then, Mr. Conscience!
===
...the mermaid... was she pretty?
- It doesn't matter whether she's pretty! She's one of a kind... a rare person. Her eyes are like peas... with a garlic-shaped nose... and sharp teeth. She's very cute.

Please be careful with my car. I only have three in this model.
===
Let me get this straight: Overthrowing Ruo-lan is like throwing away money. If money is worthless to us now... then those jets, yachts and Romanée-Conti are worthless as well?
===
I'm rich and gorgeous. There are lots of men who find me desirable. I spent 30 billion on you, but you treat me like dirt... and go chasing some tail! I really... I'm going to find her and make fish soup out of her!
===
Octopus. Have you thought about cutting off another tentacle to wear pants?
-You think you're so funny.
Yes, I'm funny...
-...but I'm even more romantic. If I want to wear pants, I can still do it with three tentacles. See?

Another Stephen Chow romantic comedy though a lot darker and more brutal than his earlier works ... so far none more enjoyable than his wacky "Kung Fu Hustle 2004" film that he directed, wrote and acted.

Critics: 6.3/10 IMDb, 3.5/4 Roger Ebert
A beautiful mermaid (Jelly Lin) falls for a developer (Deng Chao) who threatens the ecosystem of her species.
