Broad and enjoyable comedy
1 May 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Gale Henry directs and stars in this amusing tale of an incompetent female detective set in "Chinatown" in 1918; a member of the local Tong has stolen a formula for glasses that will enable people to see what's in chop suey, and she is charged with recovering the plans. What results is sequence of puns and chases that won't strain anyone's mind, but will keep you smiling throughout.
