Stanley Sui-Fan Fung,
A seasoned cop and his rookie partner are a pair of mismatched partners in this Hong Kong action-comedy in the style of 'Lethal Weapon'. The wacky twosome are up in arms as they try to solve the murder of a heroin trafficker.
A retired old west killer sets up a hotel for vagrants and wayward souls called Peace Hotel. When a woman with a gang on her tail attempts to hide there the owner of the hotel must revert to his old ways to protect his hotel.
A father's ex-girlfriend resurfaces after a 10-year absence wanting to take her son away from him. With his world shattered, he must decide between what is best for his son and his own future happiness.
You probably never thought you'd see Chow Yun Fat happily eating feces, did you? Well, that and more awaits you in The Greatest Lover, a sweet but decidedly lowbrow Hong Kong take on My Fair Lady, with Chow playing the ill-mannered lout transformed into a suave society man and Anita Mui playing his frustrated etiquette/elocution instructor.
Rarely has such a big star so totally debased himself for your entertainment, so you comedy fans owe it to Chow Yun Fat to check out his off-the-wall performance. And for those who manage to endure the juvenile humor, there really is a touching story of love and friendship waiting to be discovered here.
