The first of the Mad,Mad, Mad World series!
20 February 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World (1987) was the first of the Piu family series. Bill Tung stars as the patriarch of the family, his wife is played by Lydia Sum. The movie follows the everyday lives of the Piu family. Lydia can't get no love from her goofy husband, the oldest daughter hangs out with a bad crowd, the youngest daughter's a junior genius and the middle sibling feels it from both ends. Can Bill and Lydia ever rekindle their sex life? What kind of trouble will Loletta get into next? Check out It's A MAd, Mad, Mad World! David Chang makes a guest appearance as Bill's shady brother, Eric Tsang co-stars as Bill's oldest daughter's annoying boy friend.

A very fun film that spans over a series. The next episodes follow their exploits in Canada and Lydia's obsession with playing Mark Six lottery game. Her problems with it during this film does not go away. Recommended for fans of Hong Kong comedies.

Highly recommended.
