Storyline

Stephen Chow's special brand of very modern, very Hong Kong screwball comedy entered a new phase with Justice, My Foot!, a costume farce set in imperial China. Chow is a shyster with an equally eccentric kung-fu ace of a wife, hilariously played by Anita Mui Yim-fong. Accompanied by Chow's number one screen sidekick, Ng Man-tat, he manages to bring justice to the court and laughter to the viewer.

Hyper-Kinetic Farce
5 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film stars Stephen Chow as lawyer Sung Sai Kit, whose wife (the late, always interesting to watch in film) Anita Mui is an airborne kung fu master who always seems to be pregnant in the film. She loses her children due to Sung's shyster like tactics (an interesting way to bash lawyers!), so she gets him to retire so they can have a healthy child. This film, set in imperial China, is all over the place, almost out of breath at times, but always fun. It was a big hit, the best grossing film in China/Hong Kong in 1992, due mostly to the chemistry between Chow and Mui. Of course, Sung un-retires and things get a little more hyper-kinetic. Not at all profound, just entertaining period drama escapism. I wish I saw it in the theater, it is richly photographed. If you like films like this, you will not be disappointed.
