Ma publishes books; his marriage is flat and his wife wants attention, so she arranges a photo session in bed with Si, a gay decorator, to make Ma jealous. Her friend, Linda Lo, also unhappily married, is there as well, dressed for the photos, and Si's lover is hiding in another room. Enter Henry Lo with a call girl, and Ma himself, intent on killing Si. Chance intervenes: a best-selling author and a prude, Lovely Pak, pays a call; she wants Ma to publish her books. Mistaken identities and everyone's attempt to seem conservative to please Pak lead to chaos: Si pretends to be Ma; Ma pretends to be a servant. Will Miss Pak sign a contract, and can the married couples find harmony? Written by
Adapted from a stage play, this comedy with Francis Ng and my good friend Irene playing the Filipino Maid is a whacky good time full of innuendoes, misunderstandings, misconceptions and general tomfoolery. The sets are largely contained within the bound of the house, and there is always something just missing something else as the sequences play throughout the house like a giant comic puzzle. Francis and crew are simply amazing, and this is a great chance to catch the stars early in their respective careers to see the foundations of the skills that went on to make them famous in Hong Kong cinema!
