Plot may strain credibility, but nice work from Anna May Wong
28 January 1999 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I agree with the first reviewer that it's a bit much to believe the astrologer can be so accurate with every utterance, but the movie is light fun, and Anna May Wong gets a lot of good screen time. She doesn't just recite star charts; she also helps the police ferret out legitimate clues and solve puzzle or two. Don't take it too seriously.
