Ho hum comedy
25 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

The laughs are few and far between in this comedy take on the transference of power from Britain to China in 1997. If you think that sounds like a set-up for mass hilarity, you're mistaken. Kar-Ling Yaw plays an Anglo-Chinese cook who is called upon to serve out the term of governor 'Christ Pattern' (Chris Patten). He's encumbered by two inept bodyguards who supply most of the 'comedy', which is generally of the broadest physical and scatalogical variety. The film is also weighted down by a boring romantic sub-plot. Overall, one for the least demanding of HK film buffs.
