Plot
14 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Keith (Cheung, Hok Yau) & Fred Tung (Leung, Chiu Wai) grew up in complicted families and became street thugs. Keith & Fred wanted to set up a brothel house & found out it's a big mistaken from their first "employee" Jane (Yuen, Kit Yee) - that she's a lesbian & thought she works in a "model center".

After their failed business attempt, they got hunted down by the biggest triad boss in town - Kwan Gong.

Kwan Gong is having trouble with the police and need people like Keith & Fred's bad luck charm to turn his bad luck around. Being promoted to be Kwan's second men in the triad, Keith & Kwan enjoyed lavish lifestyles and praises from their childhood primary school & inspired other youngsters to be a gangster! Other than being a good luck charm to Kwan Gong, Keith & Fred helped out in a mission to get rid of a dead body. They failed miserably and was mistaken to be a cop's informers. In a final battle between the Bad & the wanna-be bads, a gangster wuss showed up to their rescue.

At the end, Keith & Fred spent years in jail for being a triad senior members.

The morale of the movie is that being a triad member brings you no good future.
