| A kung fu comedy with the top stars of the era
It starts tragically as the kid is orphaned but this is a martial arts comedy. The brother of the grandmaster (Lau Kar-Leung) grows up to a life on the street. He partners with Dean Shek who teaches him con artist, sleight of hand and kung fu skills (without the drawn out training sequence). They do a scam involving finding a man's son that I do not understand. Next Karl Maka makes them an offer.

My copy is wide screen and the subtitles seem to have been added by a later. The resolution is good enough for a modern television.

Dean Shek is at his best as the Prime Minister of Funny faces. Lau Kar-Wing does a masterful job of mostly slapstick fight choreography. This movie is really just for the fans of the golden age of martial arts movies from 1967 to 1984 as I am sure anyone else would not get it and just be hypercritical. For the fans though I recommend it and rate it above average.
