This is a Hong Kong action comedy pairing Chow Yun Fat and Liu Fong together as two cops, Bon and Yan. After a botched attempt to nab a drug smuggler, they end up helping illegal resident Kwong Sun (Joey Wang), who was caught in the middle of the heist. Sun fakes amnesia in order to protect her illegal identity and is put-up for several nights by Bon. However, Sun can only fake her amnesia for so long and Bon is still assigned to jab the smuggler.
It is a fast-paced police story with some touching chemistry between Chow Yun Fat and Joey Wang, and Fat and Liu Fong make a hilarious police duo - mismatched yet full of rapport. While there is plenty of humor, there are also some intense action scenes, especially involving the drug smuggler (Wai Shum) - scenes that may not be suitable for the younger ones. And, there is also some touching drama, particularly involving how Bon helps Sun.
Overall, it's a good Hong Kong action comedy that is fine for young adults and older. The younger crowd might need parental supervision.
