One of the first comedies from the Hui Brothers!
20 April 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the first comedies from Michael, Ricky and Sam Hui - a story about a con man and a small time gambler who team up to hustle their way to a great fortune.

There are lots of messages and lessons to be learned from this movie, from false relationships to crime doesn't pay. It's classic humor and spot-on acting from our actors. However, I do think that the later movies from the Hui Brothers were much better and more funny than this film. While good, this film lacks the intrigue and excitement that made many of these films great.

Overall, though, it's still a film that is 10 times better than much of the so-called comedies Hong Kong dishes out nowadays.

Grade B-
