The Tricky Jing Koo
14 May 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest chinese movie I've ever seen. It has a lot of stuff in it that you have to be chinese to understand though so I wouldn't recommend it to some of my friends. It was such a good movie that I had to go and buy it. Chow Sing Chi and Lau Tak Wah should do every movie together. They make such a good comedic team. The most memorable part of this movie for me was the suit Jing Koo was wearing at the club. Theres hundreds of great scenes though and I should single out just any one. 10 out of 10. Doesn't get any better than this.
