Man Long Chan, a constable whose antics and showmanship win him best performance awards at the Force's annual parties, is handpicked by the Deputy Police Commissioner to enroll incognito into a Performance Arts Academy as an experiment in upgrading police acting abilities. Man Long is thrilled that his lifelong acting dreams are finally going to be realized, but quickly finds out that his plain looks and exaggerated performance skills are no match to his younger and better looking classmates. His only good friend in class is a fellow mid-term new student Dani, whose claim to fame is starring in a string of skin flicks, but is an aspiring actress with a heart of gold. Man Long's confidence plunges into a downward spiral when he fails in a police operation and nearly loses his life. Then a favor he extends to Dani turns into an outright expulsion from the academy. In his darkest moments he meets a stage janitor whose priceless insights into acting teaches Man Long that the Bard was ... Written by Official

A bale of laughs, and more

Using a clever plot of a police undercover polishing his "acting skills" in the Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, Jim CHIM showcases his rich and diversified background in performing arts. In the process, the audience is entertained with some of the funniest moments they encounter on screen. But it is not easy to sustain 120 minutes of comedy. During the rather long middle segment of our hero's "student's life" at the HKAPA, things slow down somewhat, due partly to the lack of driving drama and conflict. However, this segment closes in a high note, with a mysterious, Phantom-like (in spirit only, not in appearance) Anthony WONG Chiu-seng teaching Chim's character how to look for drama in real life, right on the streets.

This is an exceptionally fine comedy from a master comedian who knows what he is doing. Charlene CHOI (the extrovert half of the "Twins"), who in real life did get apprenticed to Chim and became his protégé in acting, passes her first test here. The huge cameo cast, drawn from both the cinema and theatre circles, contributes to making this movie the prime choice in summer festivities.
