Amusing at times, but makes little sense

This is the fifth Stephen Chow movie I have seen, and it is yet another relentless collection of slapstick gags that you wouldn't find in even the silliest Hollywood comedies. If you are not familiar with the outrageous kind of slapstick found in Hong Kong movies, no doubt that some of the attempts at humor will take you aback. But having seen my share of Hong Kong comedies, I am now used to the outrageousness found in these movies. And with the non-stop display of gags, it's bound that I would find some of them to be amusing. However, though I haven't seen all of Stephen Chow's movies, I think it's safe to say that this is one of his weakest. It isn't because the level of humor is below average, but it's due to the story. As I said in my subject line, the movie makes very little sense. Whole scenes seem to be missing, scenes that possibly might have filled in the gaps of the plot. Also, some scenes seem to be missing footage from their beginnings and/or endings. All this results in the movie's story being quite hard to follow at times. I don't know if this incoherent tone was due to production problems, the film being hacked down in the editing room, or a script that was badly written before filming started. Whatever the reason(s) might be, the movie ends up being one of Chow's lesser efforts, and can only be recommended to his biggest and most forgiving fans.

Watch it for Bill Tung and Stanley Fung

I found LOOK OUT, OFFICER! an above average comedy from the Stephen Chow stable, lifted because it contains a trio of funny performances rather than just relying on Chow himself for the humour. This film's electrifying opening sees POLICE STORY's Bill Tung, aka the lovable Uncle Bill, playing a cop who takes down a warehouse full of thugs in scenes which mercilessly spoof John Woo's cinema, particularly THE KILLER. It's so great to see a guy who is so good but underused in support finally getting the chance to steal the limelight for once. Before you know it, Tung is murdered by persons unknown, but he soon returns to Earth as a ghost seeking revenge and hooks up with rookie Chow. The next great actor is former Lucky Star Stanley Fung playing his usual straight-guy role as a cop superior. Chow begins romancing Fung's daughter and the comedy goes from there. This is the usual mix of low brow escapades, ghostly scenes, romance, fun special effects, and more heroic bloodshed humour. Amy Yip has a memorable one-scene cameo. Chow is ever the acquired taste, but Fung and Tung are both hilarious throughout and the film has a fast pace and lots of snappy humour to see it through.

not revolutionary but definitely fun

Piao has been killed in a drug warehouse and its been written as a suicide. his soul come back as a ghost to try and fix this. his sky chosen savior is Hsing(Stephen Chow). Hsing agrees to find his killer for the price of helping him score girls and help with his job. first of all the movies DVD remake is called Shaolin idiot. i thought this was a irrelevant title but whatever. The film itself was nicely directed. There's a little bit of everything in this movie. comedy action romance, its all nicely done. a problem is that this movie is like many other honk Kong films so if u watched a lot of hong Kong movie this movie might seem a little typical, but i overall great movie to see for fun. with Stephen Chow in it u can safely except a few laughs.
