Second sequel for the Biu Family is somewhat entertaining.
In this Hong Kong classic comedy sequel, the Biu Family (Bill Tung, Lydia Sum, Elsie Chan, Loletta Lee and Pauline Kwan) return in another bout with big money troubles and a slew of misadventures. Time time, the family collects their lottery winnings in Canada and returns to Hong Kong to start a new life together, minus the second daughter due to a family quarrel over her boyfriend. After Mrs. Biu shows off her money to her old friends at her bank, she loses it all in a robbery. Now, void of their new found wealth, the Biu Family must start over from scratch again.
The acting was excellent in the movie, and helped deliver an otherwise slower-paced plot than the first two movies. The characters nonetheless still managed to deliver a unique brand of laugh-out-loud humor and deadpan comedy. It's entertaining seeing each of the family members go through misadventures in their lives, especially the part where eldest daughter Da-Dai must deal with her boyfriend (Lowell Lo) and her ex (Eric Tsang) meeting each other. There's also more touches of drama in the movie, like during the scene where second daughter Wai-Dai's boyfriend (Sam Christopher Chow) gets arrested for operating an illegal vendor, throwing more turmoil into the family.
Not the best sequel, but you'll still be somewhat entertained by this family comedy from start to finish!
