| No more Happy Ghost.
This is the fifth and final movie in the Happy Ghost trilogy. The character Professor Hong Sam-Kwai does not make an appearance in this movie, but the actor who portrayed him, Raymond Wong, returns to reprise his role as Stewark Pik. Pik has since become a god and grants a woman's neglected dog's wish to become human. The dog, in human form, is also portrayed by Raymond Wong.

This filmmakers really thought outside their box when making this movie. While it is sweet and goes back to the innocence of the first two Happy Ghost films, this sequel is average at best. The plot is pretty slow and there are few intriguing moments. While the earlier Happy Ghost films are carefree and family-oriented, they at least captured the audience's attention with its ghostly fun and uplifting friendship themes. This film is too cute with its dog themes, the Stewart Pik character is limited and the Hong Sam Kwai character is sorely missed.

The actors, though, did a OK job in their performances, particularly Raymond Wong. There are some interesting moments, like the dog, in human form, trying to hide himself from the neglectful owner. There are also a few exciting action scenes, but this one is my least favorite of the Happy Ghost movies.
