| A good movie with some tremendously funny situational comedy scenes.
The comparison to Inspector Clouseau is way off the mark. Inspector Chu (Chocolate) does not work independently or stumble on clues blindly as Clouseau did. He is the straight man for his two assistants. It's his quick thinking instead of lack of thought that pulls his team through.

One member being a young Anita Mui who doesn't use her high kick or show any of the skills she exhibits in later movies. She is the Superintendent's daughter and is assigned to Inspector Chocolate after his bungling an arrest and demotion to less important assignments. These new duties are commensurate with keeping the daughter out of harms way.

A missing child becomes a kidnapping and it takes Inspector Chocolate's quick thinking to bail out his teams miscues. The movie moves at a good clip keeping one entertained. There are some situational comedy scenes, like during a stake out of the ransom drop, that will cause some belly laughs. Another memorable scene involves Inspector Chocolate trying to save face while being raked over the coals by the Superintendent.

The characters are all likable and blend together well. This is a cop movie without any Kung fu action, unbelievable heroics or unnecessary body count. It's just a fun movie.
