Wong Jing's assault on Western Pop Culture continues
8 August 2001 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Wong Jing's latest reunites his two stars from the early nineties with his future stars in this hilarious comedy. Wong not only wrote, produced and directed this gem of a film put he also stars as Fat Dragon Ferrari. Nick Cheung, Suki Kwan, Stephen Chow and Sandra Ng are equally as funny in this spoof on Western pop culture, films and product placements. Nick Cheung stars as the self-titled King of the Undercovers who has been assigned to work undercover to find enough evidence to put Ferrari in prison. Suki Kwan plays his long suffering girlfriend, Sandra Ng plays Suki's sister and Stephen Chow stars as the Tricky Master Wong. This strange film manages to parody Mission Impossible, American Pie, The Matrix, Entrapment and the God of Gamblers series. He also takes a stab at Viagra, product placements and the porn industry in Japan. If you're a Wong Jing fan or Stephen Chow fan then this movie is right up your alley. It was great to see Wong Jing back acting and reworking his old chemistry with his older stars and showcasing his future stars in the process. Mr. Wong has been contemplating retirement for awhile. But if he continues to make films like this one then I would like him to reconsider. It seems like he is the only director that could successfully parody Hollywood movies and make them funny instead of tired, rushed, and poor executed puns. Here's to Wong Jing and his continued success against the Hollywood machine!!!

Highly recommended.
