Hui Brothers Comedy Fest!

The Last Message (1975) was the second of the Hui Brothers films and like the first one it was highly successful. This time around the brothers play two workers inside a mental institution who are constantly looking for ways to slack off, cut corners or ways to make a quick buck or two. Michael stars as a lazy orderly whilst Samuel co-stars as a medical assistant. One day a big burly man with crude mannerism (Roy Chiao) is admitted into the hospital. He's always clutching a small white canvas bag to his chest. Inside it are pieces of rubbish but a couple of fragments of fine China dating back to the Ming Dynasty are amongst the trash. This peaks the interest of Michael who's always swiping gold crowns, caps and bridges from dead patients. So one day he convinces Sam to help him find out where Roy got the vase fragments. Who knows they could find a fortune. Will Sam and Michael make it big from antiques? Check out The Last Message!

The second film from the highly successful Hui Brothers. Ricky has a small part as a roller skating waiter, Dean Shek cameos as a hotel desk clerk and James Tien has a bit part as a traffic cop. The movie is highly entertaining and loads of fun. If you liked the first film then you'll get more than a few chucks from this one.

Highly recommended!
