| Not as good as it should be
Sammo Hung stars as three characters in this martial arts comedy, with Mang Hoi in a supporting role as the long-suffering friend of one of the incarnations of the portly kicker. Unfortunately, this film is nowhere near as funny as it often thinks it is, and generally fails to ignite a spark of interest in the audience. So many superb actors are criminally underused, such as Lam Ching-Ying, Richard Ng, and Billy Chow. The comedy is broad (as is expected) yet is often tiresome, and the fights are rare and of lower quality than we have come to expect from the legendary Sammo (bar a few moments in the final reel). Only Wu Ma's performance as a crazy swordsman remains in the memory. If you are not anticipating a kung-fu fest but are desperate for a Sammo Hung movie, then you might as well give this a go.
