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

I don't get Stephen Chiao
1 January 2001 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

This review contains minor spoilers.

I know Stephen Chow is the comedy king of Hong Kong, but I don't get it. Still, watching this reinforces the idea that you either love him or you have no idea what the big deal is. Although, the running gag about his character being a Bruce Lee fan is pretty funny.

This movie features a fairly impressive cast, but the more impressive elements don't seem to get much screen time. This is due to the rush to get the story of the relationships of three brothers crammed into ninety minutes. Emil Chow Wah-Kin, who has shown greater potential elsewhere, is in this movie briefly.

Anyway, aside from the Chiao-related humor, the biggest reason to watch this movie is that it features three fan-favorite actresses. The first is Gigi Lai, who does a good job of looking good for the brief time she is in the movie. The second is Christy Chung who actually plays an adorable mentally ill person for part of the movie, particularly when she falls and drools. In addition, she does some pretty decent kung fu work in overalls later in the movie. Third, is my personal favorite, Wu Chien-Lien. Sadly her onscreen time is short, but as usual she's a joy to watch. Also per usual, she plays someone from Taiwan or mainland China. Her best performance bit in the movie is when she acts possessed.

Not the greatest movie, but mildly entertaining. The poor production values are glaring though, and this looks like a movie that was filmed in 1980s Hong Kong. Even some of the actor (not actress) hairstyles are reflective of this.
