An absolute crack-up
22 December 1998 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Director Alfred Cheung must either hate Mainland Chinese or something, as this film hilariously sends them up! Two Mainlander cops bring with them a prisoner, and poor Tony Leung has to look after them during their stay. Dodo Cheung gives an amazing performance as the loudmouthed, patriotic Madam-she is so funny without being anything remotely vulgar (which is a great temptation). The scenes where Tony's father and Dodo battle it out is a classic. A wonderful parody of Mainland Chinese cops and their methods of investigations...."We don't need evidence to charge people! All we need is our imagination!".
