Another classic Hong Kong family comedy!

This is another Hong Kong family comedy, featuring funnyman Stephen Chow, where he plays Lo Kung, a dependent playboy who fakes a mental illness in attempts to inherit the fortune of his two older brothers, Lo Leung (Raymond Wong) and Lo Fei (Francis Ng), who are plagued with their own troubles. Leung is a workaholic who is planning to open a restaurant and Fei is a scholar who brings home a finance-troubled girl, Shenny (Chien-Lien Wu). Much of the comedy involves Chow, who does a good job in portraying the dependent Kung. He sends up some laughable moments when he fakes his mental illness, sending his family in circles. The part where he pretends he is Bruce Lee, knocking his brother silly, is classic slapstick humor! While the plot does not elaborate much on the background of the other characters, you still get a good taste of the troubles involving Leung and Fei and how they all interconnect. Veteran actor Roy Chiao plays the father of the three brothers, displaying a caring and mild, yet humorous personality that is a joy to watch. In addition to Chien-Lien Wu, actresses Christy Chung, Gigi Lai and Amanda Lee all make an appearance - adding to the fun and entertainment of the story. In addition to the all the humor and silliness, there are doses of action, drama, notable cameos and a good message of family banding together. It's a great family comedy to pass the time with! Grade A-

I don't get Stephen Chiao

This review contains minor spoilers. I know Stephen Chow is the comedy king of Hong Kong, but I don't get it. Still, watching this reinforces the idea that you either love him or you have no idea what the big deal is. Although, the running gag about his character being a Bruce Lee fan is pretty funny. This movie features a fairly impressive cast, but the more impressive elements don't seem to get much screen time. This is due to the rush to get the story of the relationships of three brothers crammed into ninety minutes. Emil Chow Wah-Kin, who has shown greater potential elsewhere, is in this movie briefly. Anyway, aside from the Chiao-related humor, the biggest reason to watch this movie is that it features three fan-favorite actresses. The first is Gigi Lai, who does a good job of looking good for the brief time she is in the movie. The second is Christy Chung who actually plays an adorable mentally ill person for part of the movie, particularly when she falls and drools. In addition, she does some pretty decent kung fu work in overalls later in the movie. Third, is my personal favorite, Wu Chien-Lien. Sadly her onscreen time is short, but as usual she's a joy to watch. Also per usual, she plays someone from Taiwan or mainland China. Her best performance bit in the movie is when she acts possessed. Not the greatest movie, but mildly entertaining. The poor production values are glaring though, and this looks like a movie that was filmed in 1980s Hong Kong. Even some of the actor (not actress) hairstyles are reflective of this.
