A Lot Of Fun
7 September 2008 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

Not the Hollywood film, this is about a husband, wife and their three daughters who live in a housing estate in Hong Kong. It turns out, they win the lottery and their youngest daughter is kidnapped. They also find out the bank defaulted on them, so they really have no money. And, its a comedy? Absolutely. Full of snappy one liners, even from the youngest child Jody, its funny and over the top. This film also features Loletta Lee as the middle daughter, a fairly early role for her in what has been a fairly good career. Its worth it, as it will put a smile on your face. It even parlayed itself into two sequels, which is terrific, because this family is fun to watch. I recommend it to everyone. Its slapstick comedy, and its really a good time had by all.
