Will the conmen be able to defeat one of the biggest con artist that ever lived? Can they get their friend out of trouble? Check out the Conmen in Las Vegas!!!
Another great film from Wong Jing who also (pokes fun at himself) co-stars as Handsome Woo a porno director who's only interested in making lots of money (I can make ten movies a year instead of only a couple in Hong Kong). Andy Lau stars as the brains of the trio, Nat Chan co-stars as the go to guy and Nick Cheung is Andy's assistant. Kelly Lam co-stars as one
of the mysterious women that follows Andy and Nat to Las Vegas. A movie full of scams, schemes and multiple double crosses. Fun stuff.
There's a bizarre parody of Ringu that has to be seen to be believe
