Silliness in its glory.
3 January 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a film in Hong Kong's All's Well Ends Well series of unrelated movies, where, in ancient China, family matriarch Madame Chow (Ricky Hui) wants to marry off her troublesome children, the aggressive Chow Tung (Sam Hui) and his gambling addict sister, Gut (Sandra Ng).

Throughout the course of the movie, slapstick and goofy humor, silly music and outrageous innuendos highlight the loose plot, where Chow Tung and Gut try to solve their own issues and save their ailing mother. Thrown in the mix is the cursed haggard looking woman named Jinx (Teresa Mo), who has her eyes on Tung, and town beauty Snow White (Rosamund Kwan), also seeks to get married to a magician (Leslie Cheung).

It's a film not to be taken too seriously and I thought some of the goofiness does tend to go overboard. It's good for some laughs and the colorful costumes and cinematography are nice to look at, though.

Grade C+
