A con-team couple (Andy Lau & Rene Liu) head west after taking a city businessman for his BMW. But an encounter with a naive young carpenter travelling home with his life savings challenges their fate as thieves.
There is hardly any other way for me to describe this film. It is indeed fantastic and hilarious.
Andy Lau plays the Mahjong Warrior, who seem not to be able to lose. Rich as he may be, life is not so simple: by chance he finds his lost mother who now has Alzheimer's, a brother who lost his riches in the dot com bubble, and a girlfriend intent on getting back with him. Add this to a gangster rap of a underground mahjong circle (as underground as the local comedy burger bar, mind you), mix thoroughly and you have a kaleidoscope of humour that will tickle you for an hour and a half.
The characters are beautifully developed. Andy, the cool chap with a temperament that can freeze a volcano, Gigi, who is obsessive and has a fiery temperament whenever she loses a game, and Lau Ching Wan, a gang leader as sissy as Barney the Dinosaur.
It is always difficult for a comedy writer to make a full of humour as Fat Choi Spirit, but it has happened and all I can say is even if you don't know the rules of mahjong, go out and see it, because it is definitely worth it!
