Storyline

Set in old rural district, Charlie pretends to be an ALS patient so he can gain sympathy from others. He runs a charity organisation where he secretly carries out all sorts of nasty business. The village chief Fung Yan-bing is a dishonest man who likes to test others with money and take advantage of them. Along comes a beautiful woman named Yu Zan, a materialistic lady who loves money more than anything. However, the woman is carrying the baby of her ex-boyfriend who is a well-known tycoon's heir. The arrival of the baby will soon change the mentalities and nature of the three problematic human beings.

Funny classic Hong Kong comedy

7/10. I gave it 10 rating because I think it's current slightly below 5 rating is unfair.

If you're familiar with Stephen Chow's style, this movie is very similar. It also has heartwarming moments, plus it's nice to see the main characters transforming into better people throughout the movie.

All in all, good times. 7/10
