Pei Hua is a legend in gambling, as she has won many gambling challenges in the past. She was well known to be ruthless and would do whatever is necessary to win.
Entering the foray are five friends, all of them are avid gambler, who was asked to challenge Pei Hua. Being amateurs, they were given guidance, tips and gambling techniques to fight with Pei Hua. At stake s a chance by the daughter of Lei Tin, who was defeated in the tournament the previous year.
There were many slapstick humor and jokes throughout the film. What makes me laugh the most s the act of the monk. He was very funny! Scenes where he quickly seek Buddha's forgiveness for the sins he had committed really had me laughing. His sins included accidentally looking at a woman's cleavage and in participating in the gambling training.
All in all, a fun movie to watch after a hard day at work, without th complicated storyline and twists.
