A laugh-out-loud comical Hong Kong classic!
7 February 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

In this Hong Kong classic comedy, TV news reporter Bill (Bill Tung) tries to make ends meet to support himself, his wife (Lydia Sum) and three daughters (Elsie Chan, Loletta Lee and Pauline Kwan) in urban Hong Kong. In the mist of their misadventures, Bill and his family's luck change when Bill's wife suddenly wins the lottery.

The acting was excellent in the movie, from the fast-talking and wise-cracking Bill Tung to the acid wit and no-nonsense Lydia Shum. All the characters, especially Bill and Lydia, delivered a unique brand of laugh-out-loud humor and deadpan comedy. It's entertaining seeing each of the family members go through misadventures in their lives while, despite hard times, staying as a close-knit family. Even with the lottery winning, the characters learns that consequences follow and there is nothing more priceless than family.

The plot is solid and fast-paced and you'll be thoroughly entertaining by this family comedy from start to finish!
