Brilliant Masterpiece!
14 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Classic Mo Lei Tau! This film is also known as Shaolin Idiot...

This is an extremely funny film and a must see for die hard Stephen Chow fans. You might say for his early work this is some of his funniest. The story is quite random and full of ghosts, super powers, fart jokes, and Bruce Lee Spoofing. The comical overacting and slap stick chaos make this movie special.

At one point Stephen Chow kisses his girlfriends father while under a magical spell...in another scene he urinates on a gun which is really the ghost of a dead cop. Really funny stuff. For such a tiny budget film the scope of the story is fantastical.

Its easy to understand the success of Stephen Chow's other projects after one has seen his bizarre and hilarious beginnings.
