attention sir!
18 June 2003 | by secrectiveSee all my reviews

sammo hung is a cowardly officer in the police band. playing the tuba gets him the name Tuba. the police sargent needs someone to go under-cover and deliver extortion money, so he picks tuba...

i dont want to spoil the plot, but its a pretty good ghost/cop movie. loads of hilarious embarrassing moments. Sammo can do no wrong! 6.5/10
