The literal translation of the title of this movie is: Contemporary Fools.
This movie is a social satire in that it criticized the rampant corruption and the fraud in China in a comical way. Since it was just merely a year after the June 4th incident, it took a very cautious approach to avoid being banned by avoiding the direct criticism on the governmental bureaucrats, and instead, making the protagonists as the bad guys from common people.
Such cautious approach paid off, the movie had successfully passed the governmental censorship and was not banned.
