a lesser known Stephan chow movie
3 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After forty years of running his coffee shop, Mr. Li (Man Tat Ng of "God of Gamblers", "Shoalin Soccer", and "God of Cookery", among others) gets the news that his lease is about to expire and his rent is going to be raised exponentially. Li needs to find a way to get the money. That main plot is intertwined with three romantic subplots: one involving Stephan Chow as Sui, "Prince of egg tarts", whom everyone goes to for advice, put's on an act that makes him look like a ladies man, and may have met his match in Candy Yip (acting and singing star, Sammi Cheng) a girl he wronged in the past, another between Li's son, Nam & Fon Fon, a girl who tells Li that she's engaged to Nam in order to avoid loan sharks, and the third with a delivery boy trying to woo Fanny, a secretary at a karate school.

While this film isn't as off-beat, frantically paced, or sheerly madcap as Stephan Chows more well known films ("God of Cookery", "fight Back to school", "Kung Fu Hustle", etcetera...), it's still a fun little film. All of the main characters are fairly well fleshed out, likable, and well acted. And while the plot is hardly anything new, in fact fairly generic. It's heart is in the right place and there are enough laughs throughout to make it worthy for a watch with a loved one.

My Grade: B-
