What an odd movie. It's funny, and yet...
6 July 2002 | by (Boston, USA) – See all my reviews

Not sure what to say about this, other than it's very quirky and pretty funny -- but not consistently so, unfortunately. The plot involves The King of Tricks and The Emperor of Tricks (2 practical jokers for hire) who compete to out-do each other with...tricks. Some of them are priceless (especially those in the first 10 minutes, featuring the always-wonderful Joe Cheng) and some are sadly lame, but ALL of them are clearly weird. The humor is mostly broad sight-gags a la Stephen Chow (although he's not in it, his director, Lik-Chi Lee did this film).

It's definitely Hong Kong-style humor, which means it's better than most of the juvenile crap produced here in the US. Nevertheless, it's not anybody's best work. Lau Ching Wan and Anita Yuen have both done much better work in other roles.

Not a must-see, to be sure, but if you find it in a bargain bin you ought to give it a chance.
