Stephen Chow is a comic genius and his movies showcase his quick humor and at times tastefully done slapstick comedy. But, I think he overdoes the comedy in a nonsensical way in this flick, where he plays con artist Valentino who impersonate various people with another con artist to create money-making schemes. In their way are some gangsters who has tricks up their sleeves as well.
The plot is actually pretty slow with the movie consumed with moronic jokes and far-fetched stupidity. It made me wonder how the great Wu Ma (of Chinese Ghost Story fame) would get himself cast in such an oddball comedy, but, I guess that's called versatile acting. This film would generate some laughs from viewers, but I've seen much more entertaining and funnier stuff from Hong Kong than us.
