Storyline

Stephen Chow's special brand of very modern, very Hong Kong screwball comedy entered a new phase with Justice, My Foot!, a costume farce set in imperial China. Chow is a shyster with an equally eccentric kung-fu ace of a wife, hilariously played with Anita Mui Yim-fong. Accompanied by Chow's number one screen sidekick, Ng Man-tat, he manages to bring justice to the court and laughter to the viewer. Written by Celestial Pictures

As bad as it gets
17 December 2017 | by ikhwan-72526See all my reviews

I am a fan of Stephen Chow, as plenty of Asians are. However, I think it's important that even as a fan, we remain honest especially with ourselves. Stephen Chow have starred plenty of good comedic movies but Justice My Foot isn't one of them.

Understandably, Justice My Foot is a farce in the same vein as Spaceballs, Airplane! and Naked Gun. While these kinds of comedy have their niche market, it doesn't take away their transparently obvious stupidity. Parody doesn't mean you act stupid to make people laugh, parodies make you laugh because sometimes, people are stupid; and knowing this distinction is crucial.

In the scene we see the crowd laughing at Chow for being bullied by thigs, and then rescued by his kung fu wife, but it's not funny. Why? Because we know that the couples like these don't exist, and if they do, the wife would beat up the husband anyway after rescuing him, and she certainly wouldn't treat him like a damsel. You can only subvert people's expectations as long as it's still within reason and believability or otherwise, it won't make any sense.

It's not funny to have a judge openly farts every time he has a scene in the movie. Why? Because a normal reaction would be disgust without putting up with such behavior. In fact it would be funnier if people reacted enraged of the constant farting; that would be a normal reaction.

Anita Mui in my opinion, has never been a good actress, not in same class as Maggie Cheung or Michelle Yeoh. Anita Mui is a singer in Cantonese Pop and people are simply attracted to her while blindly disregarding her obviously non-talent for acting.

Other than that, the story is boring, the dialogue is cringy, the production is poor, the acting is self-deprecating and humorless. There much better Stephen Chow movies than this.
