Great fun, heartily recommend it


An enjoyable mix of drama, action and comedy leaves you with a warm feeling...as you can tell I really enjoyed this HK comedy

Has anyone else seen it?

Yeah, it's excellent. One of my favourite Chow Yun-Fat movies.

I recently picked it up in the HMV sales. Its so good. I'm a big Chow Yun Fat fan anyway and loved his Idiot savant/goof style. Hes so cute when hes asking for chocolate and the ending, man, is it great. He just screws them all.

Lol! I have to admit I picked it up in the HMV sales too! :D

Had to go to the one in Oxford Street tho as local ones have a terrible martial arts / world cinema selection. Also picked up Wild Search but unfortunately that wasn't in the sale, so it was full price. o_0

I bought a copy of this while travelling through thailand several years ago and even now writing this post it brings a smile to my face,

This film is so OTT that you cannot help but like it, the gambling scene at the beginning has me in hysterics, the dice rolling bit,

Chow Yun Fat is so charming and fun in this, as absurd and admittidly crazy this film is. I still put this on whenever i have someone over who is movie jaded and thinks they have seen everything film wise, or people who think they know asian cinema so well, but seeing this just blows them away and they just cant pigeon hole this film at all,

brill.
