Storyline

A young, unsuccessful singer, after committing suicide, is to be reincarnated, this time into a musical family. Her spirit must get to the hospital where her future mother is currently ready to give birth to her, so that she can enter the womb and be born. Unfortunately, she misses her appointed birth time, twice, due to the accidental intervention of a young man, Mr. Hong. At first she is angry and makes life hard for him, but eventually they fall in love, although she can't stay around long as she has one last chance to be born. Written by Kevin Risch <krisch@intranet.on.ca>

This third installment of the series is far more frenetically paced than the first two and its much more a film for adults. In this one, Maggie Cheung plays a ghost who is looking to be reincarnated via a pregnant woman but circumstances caused by Mr. Hong (Raymond Wong) cause her to be late. So, since she has to stay around for a while, she decides to make Mr. Hong's life crazy by causing him trouble with his girl fiend and wreaking a little havoc in the class that he teaches. Its a funny film, good special effects and fast pacing. It also has Maggie Cheung being playful, something she rarely was as her career progressed. I think so far Happy Ghost 2 was the best of the three, but this is good too. Fennie Yuen is more prominent in this film than in Happy Ghost 2 and she is (and, to this day is) a pretty good actress. So, if you're watching the series of Happy Ghost films don't miss this one.
