So So Cop Buddy Comedy
21 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although watchable due to some fun scenes of comic choreography, this is a mostly a nonsense buddy comedy about two bumbling cops Chau (Richard Ng) and Beethoven (John Sham). I'm sure the goal was to just make a likable comedy which would be profitable, but the storyline is almost an afterthought. This created a sequel, too. The two cops are always getting into trouble, confounding others etc. Mostly, women are treated only as objects, with the exception of Deanie Yip, who likes Chau. Watch this film knowing that the goal is purely to entertain, not blow you away. Its an non-essential film, but its not an abomination. Check it out, but don't expect much.
