Stephen Chow plays a rich playboy who is blown up by a mafia boss when he flirts with the boss's girl. Through a series of circumstances his professor makes him a synthetic (robotic) body that allows him to change into a variety of "Mrs. Wong's Household products" like a microwave and toothpaste. Chow eventually goes to work at a school notorious for it's rowdy students and singlehandledly disciplines them all. He then goes on to marry a former classmate played by Gigi Leung. But before the wedding happens, the mafia boss finds out that Chow is still alive and sends in his own human-robot to take Chow out for once and for all. Written by
I've seen a couple of Hong Kong movies through the years but this is something to write a note on. It defies synopses so I just give you the recipe: Frankenstein+Pulp Fiction+Class of 1999+The Mask (with Jim Carrey)+The Terminator. Mix this well with some tried-and-true HK-style slapstick (the Mad Mission type) and you got this movie. The plot is almost non-existent, just one set-piece comes after another.
Originality is not an issue with this movie (well, maybe a water tap for penis is something new), but nevertheless I laughed myself silly watching it.
Try this on a gloomy day!
