Anthony Chau-Sang Wong,
It's a tribute to my love for the great slapstick comedian, Sandra Ng, that I watch such dreck as this. I might pan such movies but I'd still give them a try just because she's in them, just in case one of these "mo lei tau" (brainless and senseless) comedies rubs me in the all the right ways, like with Mortuary Blues.
Anyway, this movie is pretty bad. A barely-there story is to be expected but the jokes were barely there as well. With the exception of the two veteran leads, Sandra and Raymond Wong, the actors cross the line from slapstick to slapc*ck. The latter, as expected, is painful to watch and experience.
