Funny parody of late 80's Hong Kong films.

Days of Being Dumb (1992) is a hilarious parody of the film Days of Being Wild and others of the same ilk. It stars Jacky Cheung and Leung Chi Wai as two losers who'll do anything to try and be successful in the Triad world. But all they've accomplished is having a bad luck reputation in the crime world. They're labeled jinxes and nobody would go near them. The movie is told in flashback from the two main characters point of view.

For Hong Kong Cinema fans only. Highly recommended

One of my favorite scenes in this film revolves around Tony Leung Chui Wai and Jacky Cheung making their own tattoos. It has to be seen to be believed!
