Michael Hui teams up with his brother Ricky for this crime comedy where
fortune teller Feel Bone Hui (Michael Hui) gives pretentious forecasts,
and ends up being investigated by revenue agent Yau Ho-Kay (Leon Lai)
for failing to pay taxes. However, a robbery attempt and a blow to the
head enabled Hui in receiving psychic powers. Thus, hoping this would
get the agent off his back, he uses his new-found powers to try to help

As always Michael and Ricky delivered some laugh-out-loud and
unique-flavored comedy. Their screen presence captures the audience's
attention, along with the well-acted supporting cast of Winnie Lau, Chi
Wah Wang and Philip Chan. Leon Lai was OK as the agent (his performance
didn't blow me away), but Kong Fong as the main villain was conniving,
yet hilarious at the same time.
The psychic-power subplot couple with the main story of the revenue
agent pursuing the drug kingpin (Kong Fong) complimented each other
very well and made it an exciting movie from start to finish. Also, the
dramatic teamwork between Hui and Kay were pretty uplifting to watch,
as is Kay's mission to solve the case and make a better living for
himself and his elderly mother.
It's good old fashion suspense to keep you captivated.
