What is it good for? Well it's good for a story point in this comedy. Midas Touch as the english title tells us. Not the best movie to come out of China (Hong Kong) in the last decade, but overall decent. You can watch this I reckon if you don't have anything else to do with your time.
In other words, if you like silly you can give it a try. Maybe watch at least a bit of the trailer, so you're not taken aback when (if?) you watch it. I could have done without watching this, but I've seen way worse movies and this seems to have its heart at the right place at least
