You need to watch it more than once
16 November 1998 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I can't help but feel that this movie was rushed to meet the deadline (of Chinese New Year). There are many big stars in this movie, especially Sammi Cheng. The jokes often require repeated viewing to fully appreciate, especially the scene with Prince Egg-Tart and Ah Fuk both taking turns to be turned down by Fanny.

The other funny scene from the beginning of the movie where Ah Sui (Prince Egg-Tart) was dumped by an old lady for not being mentally in the same "channel" while Ah Sui turning down a babe who bought him a car and apartment is particularly amusing.

Overall, the movie is quite good, especially with Stephen Chow and Sammi Cheng, but like all the other Chow fans out there, I recommend repeating viewing to fully appreciate the movie.

I have watched it 7 times so far.
