This film is reminiscent of 80's Hong Kong comedies, some of which felt like they were filmed at double speed. There some very familiar faces, especially actor/producer Eric Tsang and lead actor Feng Shui Fan, both of whom acted in the comedies I was referring to. The story is of a father (feng Shui) and his children, Mei (Theresa Mo) a lawyer married to Eric's unambitious character, a daughter who works as the manager of a market who looks somewhat androgynous but wants to create the illusion she is pregnant (Denise Ho) and a young son (6Wing, who is infatuated with a TV personality. Basically, Feng Shui is trying to keep the family together, they go through various "criseses". While it is a comedy that sometimes tries too hard, there is a little heart to it. Recommended, but it is not a great film, but it does run quickly and effortlessly through its ninety six minutes.
