Storyline

Old Hui runs a restaurant specializing in roast duck. His secret duck recipe is very tasty, but customers and staff alike have to put up with the filthy shop and Hui's cost-cutting way of doing business. When ''Danny Fried Chicken'' (an American-style fast-food restuarant) opens up across the street, Hui receives a rude shock and is forced to lift his game to compete. He might even have to supply clean chopsticks. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

28 April 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I suppose you could argue that this movie relies on an extremely silly story and a great deal of stupid, almost juvenile, jokes. And I suppose this is true... but there are so *many* of the jokes, and they're all so *funny*!

It's a wonderful movie, watchable over and over, and superior to just about all of the Hollywood comedies of late. This, and "The Private Eyes", are also great examples of Hong Kong movies which are very accessible and entertaining to audiences worldwide, without compromising their own uniquely Chinese aspects.
