Ching Wan Lau,
Tony Chiu-Wai Leung,
As long as you try to think of it as being purely a low budget comedy you'll be OK rather than a 'sequal' to Aces Go Places.
It bears very little similarities to the older films. It tries some slapstick but fails wherever it tries to emulate the successes of the past.
No Sam Hui, no Karl Maka. None of the glue that held the original films together, no chemistry between the actors and even the sexy Christy Cheung does very little in this film deserving any merit.
Having said all this, it's not a terrible film. It's not good, but it's not a terrible film. Light hearted once off viewing if you happen to come across the DVD or the VCD but don't expect amazing comedy or a return to the good old days of King Kong and Baldy.
