Funny, one of my childhood favorites.
I grew up watching Hong Kong movies, most in the comedy and ghost genre, and this film features a good dose of both.
Richard Ng plays a ghost who visits his cousins and is unaware that he has died in a drowning accident days before. The other cousins want to inherit his wealth, but are soon suspicious of Ng's character and the suspense built up as the movie goes on. Added in the story are two female ghosts who are dueling each other for a groom.
Great comedy that flows naturally, and not childish/slapstick and overdone. The characters are delightful and entertaining, making you laugh your hearts out. And, there are enough supernatural and mysterious scenes that does not make you forget you are watching a ghost movie. A must-see for any fans of movies made in Hong Kong.
