| Quite an average Hong Kong family comedy.
This is a somewhat funny Hong Kong comedy starring Raymond Wong as Wong Ka-Fan, whose wife Ping (Olivia Cheng) wants to invite her brother Ngan Kwai-Nam (Michael Hui) from Mainland China to visit them in Hong Kong for a while. After Ngan moves in, it becomes too close for comfort in their apartment and Ngan adjusting to life in the city using his unconventional mainland habits ruffles a few feathers in Wong's household.

There are several hits and misses in this film due to the slow plot and few redeeming qualities in the cast, especially Olivia Cheng's character. However, there are some funny slapstick comedy and classic Hong Kong humor that may generate some laugh-out-loud moments, courtesy of Michael Hui and Ricky Hui. The chemistry between Michael Hui and Maria Cordero was also hilarious. There's also a hint of touching family moments as well.

It's not a bad film overall, just a tad slow. It's nice seeing Joey Wang in a starring role as well, in addition to cameo appearances of a host of actors including Tony Leung, Fennie Yuen, Loletta Lee, Elsie Chan and Lowell Lo.

Grade C+
