Much-better-than-average Hong Kong action-comedy...but still uneven!
You know what I mean. Hong Kong action comedies tend to veer wildly from bloody action to goofy humor...and just about everything else in-between! THAT'S MONEY isn't much different, but it's way better than most. The plot centers on a Triad gangster ripping off his former boss' money-men, and a P.I. firm is hired to play stalking horse and catch the gangster with a lot of cash as the lure. Long story short, the P.I.'s end up with the money by accident, with the renegade gangster and his boss looking to get it back! Fortunately, the good guys have VERY able support in the form of the lead P.I.'s girlfriend/secretary(!) (Yukari Oshima, "FINAL RUN" and "ANGEL") and his sister (Kara Hui Yin-Hung, "8 DIAGRAM POLE FIGHTER" and "MY YOUNG AUNTIE")! What more do you need to know? Go see it!
