Hui Brothers (Michael and Ricky) comedy fest: The Chocolate Inspector.
25 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

The Chocolate Inspector (1986) was one of the last films to prominently feature the Hui brothers (Michael and Ricky). Micheal stars as a laid back Hong Kong Inspector who has a very big sweet tooth. he just wants to do his job and kick back. A new kid on the block (Michael Chow) wants to take up all the spotlight and make Michael look like the fool. One day Chief Chiao (Roy Chiao) wants Michael to take his daughter (Anita Mui) under his wing. One day, the three of them get the biggest case of their lives. A young girl from a prominent family get's kidnapped. Will the Chocolate Inspector and his crew solve the case? If you want to watch a funny movie that doesn't rely on cheap shots and toilet humor, you have to watch The Chocolate Inspector! Check out Elvis Tsui and his mean looking mullet.

Highly recommended.
