| Another fun HK comedy from the Hui's Brothers.
This is another fun Hong Kong comedy starring Michael Hui and Ricky Hui (their younger Sam Hui has a cameo appearance). Here, Hui (Michael Hui) runs a restaurant with a tasty roast duck recipe. However, his employees and customers have to endure the a run-down and unsanitary looking restaurant - Hui's way of cutting maintenance cost. Hui might have to rethink his strategy when an American-style fast-food restaurant opens across the street.

It's a nice little movie with some laughable moments and decent acting, with Michael and Ricky delivering their unique comedy brand that will sure entertain the audience. Sylvia Chang, Lowell Lo, Wing-Cho Yip and Kai-Nam Ho all make a great team in making the plot pretty exciting by making the audience guess how they will be able to pull off competing with the popular fast food restaurant.

The movie is not as suspenseful or funny as previous Hui Brothers films like The Contract and Security Unlimited, but it's still great comedy that surpasses many of today's films of the 00s and on.

Grade B+
