| An Early Comedy from John Woo
Money Crazy is a comedy vehicle for Richard Ng (a rising star for Golden Harvest). Hui brother Ricky is thrown into the mix as Richard's cohort in crime. The two swindlers team up to try and steal a diamond from a big shot Jeweller (he has ties with some real shady characters). John Woo directs the film with a manic pace, slapstick and screwball flair that he would later develop in his later films.

As usual, John Woo's female characters are their to fill up space. This is really a two many show between Ricky Hui and Richard Ng. The two make a real good team and they're funny as hell. Watch for the scene from the french film Riffi, Ricky ties Richard's feet and hoists him down from the celling head first as he tries to nab the diamond from the owner's chest because the owner installed a high tech burglar alarm that would go off with the slightest movement from outsiders.

John Woo also pays homage to the Golden Shaolin Warriors!

A must see for true John Woo fans!!

Highly recommended
