Fun Hong Kong Comedy with an All-Star cast!
19 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

This movie was filed in Hong Kong with the intention of donating its proceeds to flood victims in Mainland China. It stars Eric Tsang as a wealthy businessman trying to clinch a deal for the reconstruction of Kuwait after the Gulf War from a Prince. His business rival is a character played by Sammo Hung.

In addition to the starring cast of Eric Tsang, Sammo Hung, Carol 'Do Do' Cheng, Jacky Cheung, Richard Ng and Tony Leung, you get to see cameos from dozens of stars including Maggie Cheung, Gong Li, Anita Mui, Sally Yeh, Stephen Chow, Raymond Wong, Joey Wang, Aaron Kwok and Leslie Cheung.

It's a fun movie seeing all the stars together - the biggest cast ever assembled in a Hong Kong movie. The plot is simple and steady-paced; it's not too exciting, but you at least will get some laughs out of it.

Grade B
