'Vulgaria' lives up to its name

Racy jokes and crude humor top Hong Kong box office
Hollywood blockbusters The Dark Knight Rises and Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted are two of the most anticipated summer flicks from overseas, while The Silent War, directed by notable Hong Kong directors specializing in the genre, Alan Mak and Flix Chong, is also enthusiastically hyped.

One film that's quickly gaining a different type of attention is Vulgaria, directed by Hong Kong native Pang Ho-cheung. The film topped Hong Kong's box office a week after its premiere in Hong Kong on August 9.

Pang, making a name for himself with films like You Shoot, I Shoot (2001) and Dream Home (2010), is known for his comedies. His latest work continues his trademark features, adding more comical sex scenes and dirty language.

Though R-rated and labeled as a "vulgar" movie, the film made over HK $20 million ($2.58 million) since its premiere, according to Pang's Sina Weibo on August 26.
