Early Stephen Chow
The usual amusing Hong Kong martial arts/comedy from Stephen Chow. As with many of his other films (All for the Winner, God of Gamblers 2)- his "uncle tat" is also present. I don't find him that amusing, but I guess Stephen needs a straight man.
The usual amusing antics, fight scenes and physical comedy ensue.
One of the funniest moments I've seen in a film (and I don't usually like crass humor) was when Stephen is forced to chew the "gum" (actually a condom) and manages to blow a bubble! Don't miss the outtakes from this scene in the closing credits.
P.S. This seems to have been filmed during the Gulf War and I found it interesting that Stephen Chow would be wearing a Saddam Hussein tshirt in the film. Was this to express solidarity with Iraq against the (first) US invasion? Was this supposed to be an ironic comment the way some kids think it's funny to wear a Charles Manson shirt?
