Storyline

Lo King, a dependent playboy, fakes his own mental illness in attempts to inherit the fortune of his two older brothers, Lo Leung and Lo Fei, who are plagued with their own troubles. Leung is a busy businessman who is planning to open a restaurant. Due to his busy schedule, he is putting his relationship at risk with his wife. Fei is a scholar who brings home a finance-troubled girl, Shenny, to arouse hatred in his father (in return with some money) so he can choose to marry his punkish girlfriend, whom his father detests. However, unbeknown-st to Fei, Shenny develops a crush on him. Written by Oliver Chu

Another classic Hong Kong family comedy!
2 January 2015 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is another Hong Kong family comedy, featuring funnyman Stephen Chow, where he plays Lo Kung, a dependent playboy who fakes a mental illness in attempts to inherit the fortune of his two older brothers, Lo Leung (Raymond Wong) and Lo Fei (Francis Ng), who are plagued with their own troubles. Leung is a workaholic who is planning to open a restaurant and Fei is a scholar who brings home a finance-troubled girl, Shenny (Chien-Lien Wu).

Much of the comedy involves Chow, who does a good job in portraying the dependent Kung. He sends up some laughable moments when he fakes his mental illness, sending his family in circles. The part where he pretends he is Bruce Lee, knocking his brother silly, is classic slapstick humor! While the plot does not elaborate much on the background of the other characters, you still get a good taste of the troubles involving Leung and Fei and how they all interconnect.

Veteran actor Roy Chiao plays the father of the three brothers, displaying a caring and mild, yet humorous personality that is a joy to watch. In addition to Chien-Lien Wu, actresses Christy Chung, Gigi Lai and Amanda Lee all make an appearance - adding to the fun and entertainment of the story.

In addition to the all the humor and silliness, there are doses of action, drama, notable cameos and a good message of family banding together. It's a great family comedy to pass the time with!
