An great ghost comedy starring Lydia Sum.
31 May 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a ghost comedy starring Lydia Sum as Siu-Fung, who runs a pizzeria with her husband Mo Jup-shu (Bill Tung) and son Mo Tak-Go (Eric Tsang). She unexpectedly succumbs to a heart attack and, after her spirit was unable to cross over to the other side, she resurrects into the body of a young woman named Diana (Maggie Cheung) and tries to convince her family that she is alive.

Although a ghost movie, the story relies more on the comedy and family drama for entertainment. The ghost elements were not as ghastly or horrific as much of the ghost comedies of the era, but it works in this film. The plot is fast-paced, with the intriguing device of Siu-Fung trying to connect with her family an interesting element and the sudden appearance of a woman who physically resembles Siu-Fung offers added suspense to the film.

The acting was great - especially liked the parts where Lydia Sum and Maggie Cheung fight off a bunch of minions in the store. Lydia gave a fiery and likable performance in her two roles and Bill Tung gave a dramatic yet carefree performance. Eric Tsang plays the lovable son and Maggie Cheung did great playing two roles as well. Dennis Chan played a hilarious spiritworld keeper and Paul Chun makes a convincing villain. Lots of funny scenes, surprises and touching moments.
