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 appreciate slap-stick and some of SC's other movies (God of Cookery, Justice my Foot, Hail the Judge, Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer and others) but I just couldn't handle this movie.
I was just too goofy. His transformations, the abusive HS Students, the ugly duckling, the bad hair professor but at least the women looked fine and the QT parody of Pulp Fiction was kinda funny. But overall this movie was a little too strange for me. I may try to watch it again with a few under my belt.
I do like Steph Chow and his band of actors. Maybe all this film was a spring board for greater works.
