A Stephen Chow vehicle, this film is about a con artist and his world. Mr. Chow plays Tino in a usual over the top performance. After he gets jilted by his girlfriend (Sandra Ng, in what really is a cameo), he goes through comic misadventures with Theresa Mo, someone he met who is also a con artist. She is pretty much his apprentice and they set out to steal from a person's home. Trouble is, other cons also had the same idea, but they use a different approach. It turns out to be a film of mistaken identities, fast paced nonsense and comic violence (theresa Mo seems to get slapped often). The movie also has the amazingly sexy Amy Yip as Apple, who is also a con, but a hopelessly drunken one. I don't need to tell you what happens, since if you like Mr. Chow, you'll like this. It is a slapstick comedy on helium, it is all over the place. However, that is what Hong Kong slapstick is, its almost Keystone Kops type action. Not perfect by a long shot, its entertaining. What more can you expect from a comedy? Watch it.
