Did You Know?


The film's Chinese title, Five Lucky Stars was chosen as it was evocative of the Seven Little Fortunes (aka "The Lucky Seven"). The Seven Little Fortunes was the name of the performance troupe that included Hung, Chan and Yuen, whilst they attended the Peking Opera School, The China Drama Academy, as children. See more »

Cracks Me Up!!!
6 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although Jackie Chan is shown on the DVD cover, this is most definitely a Sammo Hung film although Chan and Sammo get together for a little fight in a fast-food place where some neat moves are used by both. For me though, the funniest parts were performed by Richard Ng and for those who have seen it will remember the 'invisibility' scene and his little 'gentle boxing' fight at the party. For those who haven't, you'll recognise the scenes when they show up. Not the greatest martial arts film but it does have a neat stunt performed by Chan which resembles a similar stunt in 'The Fast and The Furious' in which he passes under a lorry but rather than use a car he uses roller skates, very awesome. Great comedy.
