One of Stephen Chow's best
29 December 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"King of Hong Kong comedy" Stephen Chow partners with popular Canton-pop singer Jacky Cheung in this unexpectedly humourous and fun-to-watch comedy/action flick. It's not as over-the-top as some of Chow's other films but if you like Chow's non-chalant but hilarious style of acting then you'll sure get a good laugh out of this little gem. Jacky Cheung's performance is surprisingly not-so-bad. I think this is one of Chow's best films. Go give it a try!!
