I think this is one of Stephen Chow's best films. Lots of great gags, good action even. I strongly recommend it. Its a typical stephen chow comedy (him trying to work it on some super attractive woman despite being a loser), but its transposed on top of the basic theme of Bruce Lee's 'Fists of Fury' (also remade by Jet Li into 'Fist of Legend').
