Storyline

Joe (Chow Yun Fat), a taxi driver who finds love when he accidentally hits someone with his taxi. The victim is May (Joey Wang), a sweet girl who walks with a limp due to one of her legs being longer than the other. Joe mistakenly thinks that he's crippled May for life, so to make it up to her he works for her family, helping them run their grocery store. Soon, he falls in love with May, but she's slow to return his affection. She'd better make up her mind quick, though, because her buxom, cousin (Nina Li Chi) has her eyes flirting on Joe, too!

A Fun Film
22 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chow Yun Fat plays Joe, who injures the sweet and pretty May played by Joey Wang. As compensation Joe works in May's dad's store which is just about to open up. The movie is as crazy as its name, sometimes in overdrive, but its the kind of slapstick comedy that was all the rage in HK, especially at the time. There is no need to go into what happens, but the film also has the beguiling Nina Li in it as Scarlet, a love starved vixen who has already buried (actually more "worn out") three husbands and has designs for Joe. Don't read the synopsis on the DVD, you'll get a shorthand version of what happens. Just put it on and enjoy, especially American audiences who don't see Chow Yun Fat let loose with his comic chops too often.
