23 April 2015 | OllieSuave-007
| One of the more solemn comedies from the Hui Brothers.
This movie is one of the earlier films from the Hui Brothers, where they play two workers inside a mental institution who are constantly looking for ways to slack off or search for a quick way to find fast money. When Chiang Wo (Roy Chiao) is admitted into the hospital, the brothers, Tim (Michael Hui) and Lee (Sam Hui) eye his small white, which they think contains fragments of fine China from the Ming Dynasty. This leads to some comedic acts in from the brothers to get their hands on the fragments and leads to an interesting plot of where they could find such fortune.

The Hui Brothers brought new approach to comedy in Hong Kong back in the day and it's a type of comedy that is sorely missing in today's films that Hong Kong dishes out. While this film is more of the solemn ones from the Hui Brothers and does not contain as much comedy or humor as other entries, it's still a classic film worth watching.
