A Passable Slapstick Comedy
4 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

This film is about Wendy, who can start fire as well as do other things due to a curse on her family. She has one surviving aunt, a nightclub worker nicknamed Big Beer, whom she goes to live with in Hong Kong. Her power is harnessed for certain things, good and greed. This slapstick comedy is nonsense but its pretty good nonsense. There is no morality play here, just a bunch of sight gags and all around silliness. Wendy is played by Chingmy Yau, who at times looks breathtaking in this film. You can't be too critical on a film like this, its aim is low and it hits its mark. If you like slapstick comedy, its not great but it will pass the time.
