| A laughable and suspenseful Stephen Chow comedy.
This is a comedy where an outcast son wants to steal the inheritance from his sister by kidnapping her and getting a lookalike to fill in for her at his father's mansion.

This is a pretty fast paced movie with some humor and slapstick comedy from Stephen Chow. He could balance out his comedic approach with drama well.

Chow had good on-screen chemistry with Sandra Ng, who plays Fung the lookalike sister. It is suspenseful to see her getting cause on the sinister plot, which resulted her in having a strong bond with her new "family" and having the daunting task to steal for the crooked outcast.

Anthony Chan makes a daring partner-in-crime to Chow and Anthony Wong Chau Sang makes a love-to-hate villain.

Overall, it's a pretty good crime comedy.

Grade B+
