A pretty amusing crime comedy with Carol Cheng and Maggie Cheung.

This is a crime comedy starring Carol 'Do Do' Cheng and Maggie Cheung as Nurse Liang Shanbo and Actress Zhu Yingtai (Maggie Cheung), mismatched cousins who just inherited a rental home from their late relative. Their frustrated relationship makes the movie quite entertaining from the start and suspense builds when they moved in to their home and discover that a room has been rented out to a criminal gangster named Ben. His nefarious activities later gets him killed but before he dies, he whispers a code in Yingtai's ear. The plot gains more steam when the girls are later visited by a man claiming to be Ben's brother (Ben Lam), who wants to solve the case. In the meantime, gangsters believed to be involved with Ben's murder want to retrieve the code from the girls, whom they think were told by Ben what it actually unlocks.

Somewhat fast paced from start to finish, the suspense is sometimes interrupted or intertwined in the silly humor, which is evident in lots of these Hong Kong films. Plenty of clever acting, but some times the action is a little too quick. But overall, it's a pretty entertaining crime comedy.

Grade B-
