Typically wacky

TRICKY BRAINS is yet another Stephen Chow comedy from his most prolific period. This time around he plays a prankster called in to play a lengthy and laborious trick on businessman Andy Lau by his underhand rival Waise Lee. Much hijinks and bizarre, goofball comedy ensue, with Chow's regular co-stars appearing throughout. Wong Jing writes and directs this one and brings his usual level of wacky inventiveness to the story, and Lau is excellent in the straight man role. Good female support from Chingamy Yau and Rosamund Kwan adds to the fun, too, and there's nary a dull moment throughout. Fun!

The Tricky Jing Koo

This is the funniest chinese movie I've ever seen. It has a lot of stuff in it that you have to be chinese to understand though so I wouldn't recommend it to some of my friends. It was such a good movie that I had to go and buy it. Chow Sing Chi and Lau Tak Wah should do every movie together. They make such a good comedic team. The most memorable part of this movie for me was the suit Jing Koo was wearing at the club. Theres hundreds of great scenes though and I should single out just any one. 10 out of 10. Doesn't get any better than this.

Not as funny as I remember

I remember watching this when I was a lot younger at a party. I remembered it has being very funny; a classic. Now that I've had a chance to see it again on DVD, it is nowhere near as funny or as good as I remember. The film starts out funny enough. The trickster (as we used to call him) fools a guy and sends him out into the middle of a mall sitting on a toilet. It is a very funny opening scene that I have remembered to this day. As the movie progesses however, things get bland and dull. SPOILER ALERT What happens is the films goes from being straight out comedy (which worked) into an attempt at drama. The trickster is sent to fool a man, but eventually starts feeling sorry for him. This drags on and on and on. What happened to the humor of the 1st scene?! Now it's less humor, more relationships. The trickster loses his cool image and turns into a goof. Then in the last scene he takes a metal box and pulls out all these random ridiculous items, such as a boxing glove on a spring. This isn't as funny and doesn't match the style of the opening. Still this is a funny movie. I just guess after all these years without watching it my expectations became too high. Those who are interested in the theme may still want to check it out.
