An earnestly filmed film by Stephen Chow
25 October 2005 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

The story: Chow, as a Chinese fairy, believes that things are not set by god, so he was sent to the "earth" to prove that he is correct. His mission is to change the "fixed" lives of 3 people: a woman who is dedicated to be a pros for 9 lives, a man who is dedicated to be a beggar for 9 lives and a man who is dedicated to be a gangster for 9 lives. However he loses his magical powers on "earth" but only has a bamboo fan which can fulfill 3 wishes a day.

The camera angles are comparatively special among Hong Kong films on the releasing year. Chow's character is good-heated and has a encouraging spirit. It is earnestly filmed, and there is no dirty jokes or whatsoever stupid.
