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 with 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. Written by Celestial Pictures

A movie with a real kick...
21 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are many kung fu comedies involving lawyers and corruption, but none I've ever seen has the kind of kick to it as this movie does.

The plot of this film is not exactly new ground for Stephen Chow, but the most inspired element of this movie is Anita Mui as his bossy, pregnant kung fu wife. That alone should prompt the undecided to give it a try. She is downright hysterical and for me, at least, stole the movie right out from under Chow. I consider this one of her more delightful roles. With every high kick, she raises the bar in what would be just another comic Chinese lawyer/corruption tales. Somewhat better than "Hail the Judge".
