This film is about the interactions between two rival mobile phone shop owners in a busy shopping area in Hong Kong.
Since "72 Tenants of Prosperity" is a happy film for Chinese New Year, I expected it not to be any good. In fact, it is so bad that it contains everything why I do not like most Hong Kong films. The plot is almost non-existent, filled with complete nonsense that is supposed to make people laugh. The plot twists do not make much sense, while the story does not invoke any warm or happy feelings.
The abundance of advertising is almost shameless, with some scenes occupied by shop signs or prominent product placement. There is a scene where you can completely and exclusively see the advertisement of a sushi chain restaurant! "72 Tenants of Prosperity" is such a silly film. Watching it is a complete waste of time.
