In Hong Kong of 1969, three detectives: Director, Fugu, and Sam live a normal life. They work, eat, sleep, and live in their huge office/apartment on the second floor of an office building. They normally go out to fight crime. One case, however, changed their lives greatly. Fugu brings home a magic lamp and some other broken antiques after a tussle with two thieves at an antique shop. Thinking the lamp will grant him some wishes, he rubs it and wishes to marry his cousin, Jane. He later leaves for the US. Right after he leaves, a friendly witch named Harmy BoBo comes out of the lamp and tries to grant Sam and the Director the wishes. Only Fugu, however, can have the wishes since he rubbed the lamp first. BoBo does not know Fugu left the country, and Sam and Director does not know BoBo is a witch. BoBo decides to spend a few nights with the two detectives. She later gets robbed by the Lotus Seed Gang and leaves her twin cousins (who are originally chopsticks) behind. The twin cousins ...

Funny little movie that spoofs various HK legends!
18 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a fantasy comedy from Hong Kong about a wizard who is summoned in 1960s Hong Kong by a trio of bumbling detectives to do their bidding.

Ching Wan Lau, Louis Koo and Jordan Chan stars as the three detectives and that all spoof the personalities of HK legends Michael Hui, Ricky Hui and Sam Hui. Ching wan and Jordan were spot-on as Michael and Ricky, matching their gestures and dialog. Louis did an OK job as Sam, but the medley he sang was a good tribute to Sam.

The wizard, played by Cecilia Cheung, takes on a Harry Potter-like approach, and Francis Ng spoofs the great Kieh Shih. The movie also spoofs a number of Hong Kong and Hollywood films - a treat you will find pretty entertaining.

There is really no main plot in the movie, just various subplots mash into one movie, but they all follow the main character leads. It's pretty fun with silly romance, laugh-out-loud humor (Christy Chung's characters was my favorite) and slapstick action. Worth watching.
