  AV (2005)
AV has enough wit and offbeat humor to make it worthwhile, and the fact that it was conceived and shot in a short span of time gives it heavy cred.
They need about 2.5 million yen to hire their chosen AV dream girl (Manami Amamiya, who just so happens to be a real AV girl), so they assemble what they can, then get a sizable chunk through an entrepreneur loan given to young people with a dream.
AV is intriguing and involving for the majority of its running time, and though some of his choices could be perceived as disingenuous, misogynist, or just plain insulting, there's a wit and darkly funny edge to the proceedings that make the whole strangely enthralling.

 DVD Times - AV
The humour in AV is very much male-oriented, and although it tends to laugh at the laddish behaviour of the characters, it doesn’t demean these poor guys who are strung along by their raging hormones too much.
AV is released on DVD in Hong Kong as a 2-disc Special Edition by Mei Ah, a company have certainly improved the standard of their releases from what they were like a few years ago.
AV doesn’t really have that much to say about the young generation, nor does it have anything particularly new to add to the teen-comedy genre, and although it is not a laugh-a-minute, the film is nevertheless reasonably well-paced and delivers on its premise through a number of very funny sequences and movie-fan references.

 Judaism 101: Tisha B'Av
Tisha B'Av, the Fast of the Ninth of Av, is a day of mourning to commemorate the many tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people, many of which coincidentally have occurred on the ninth of Av.
From the first to the ninth of Av, it is customary to refrain from eating meat or drinking wine (except on the Shabbat) and from wearing new clothing.
The restrictions on Tisha B'Av are similar to those on Yom Kippur: to refrain from eating and drinking (even water); washing, bathing, shaving or wearing cosmetics; wearing leather shoes; engaging in sexual relations; and studying Torah.

 Av (month) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Av usually occurs in July–August on the Gregorian calendar.
In 1290 -- on the 9th day of Av, which is the same day that the Temple in Jerusalem was twice destroyed, and which is therefore the worst day in Jewish history -- the Jews were expelled from England and not permitted to return for almost four centuries.
Holidays in Av Wikisource has an original article from the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica about:

 The Hebrew Year - The Months: AV
of Av." Relative to all other souls of Israel, the soul of Mashiach, who comes to redeem Israel from her state of (spiritual as well as physical) exile, is like a groom to his bride.
The rectification of Shimon (the rectification of the sins and iniquities of Israel which brought to the destruction of the Temple in the month of Av, the month of Shimon) is by his clinging to the most essential attribute of Moses--humility.
Thus we conclude that the power of the month of Av (the month of [apparent] destruction) is to "hear" the message "spoken" by the month of Nissan (the month of redemption), and integrate the first and foremost power of Israel?leadership?into the consciousness of the Jewish people.

 The Month of Av - OU.ORG
The name "Av" itself, like all the other names of months in the Hebrew Calendar, "came up" with the Jewish People on their return to the Land of Israel from their Exile in Babylonia.
Another meaningful interpretation of the name "Menachem Av" is that the word "Av" is spelled "Aleph, Bet." The Prophet Yirmiyahu, an eye-witness to the destruction of the Temple, Yerushalayim and its population, describes those events in Megillat Eichah, in tears.
And yet another meaningful interpretation of the name, "Menachem Av," is that it is a valid description of Jewish History that at the darkest times, when there seems to be no hope for the future, a ray of light is found.

 A.V. (2005)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The story is about 4 HK guys making a fake porn film starring a Japanese AV girl (AV girl being equivalent to an American Porn star) so that they can all get laid.
Sure, they could probably just go to a prostitute and it would be a lot cheaper, but not many hookers would be as cute as real-life Japanese AV girl Amamiya Manami.
The film is consistently funny with some very raunchy humour for a HK movie but it is handled reasonably tastefully with excellent performances from all of the leads.
