| A gift of a comedy.
Carol Cheng, Joey Wong, Sandy Lam star as three friends/colleagues at a Hong Kong corporation who stumbled upon a bag filled with 10 million dollars in cash while working late in the night. After serious thought, they take the money for themselves and think of a safe plan to spend it, hoping nobody will get suspicious at the office. However, when they discover that their company's senior manager was blackmailed and the money left behind to pay out the blackmailer was reported missing, the friends fear that they might be reprimanded.

This is an intriguing movie with tastefully done humor and great chemistry among the character leads, each one having her own background and relationship issues. Their friendship, sometimes bickering, something consoling each other, are funny to watch, and it is captivating to see their friendship tested over the money. Their relationships with their male counterparts were also funny to watch.

The suspense builds when the executives come together to talk about the missing money and the blackmail scandal that erupts over the company, while the three friends watch helplessly, wondering if they're going to be incarcerated for what they've done (although they themselves were not the blackmailers, just happened to find and pick up the money).

It's a great movie from start to finish, fast-paced with great acting and an intriguing plot.
