| Not really a comedy from Clifton Ko.
Clifton Ko, known for his lighthearted and feel-good movies, directs this one with Raymond Wong, who plays a junior clerk at a construction company. He lives under the care of his uncle and his cousin, Ping (Pauline Yeung). However, his simple life goes astray when he comes across an old billionaire who teaches him the secret to becoming rich.

Not bad acting from the cast of characters and this film gives a lesson that being rich does not mean everything will be hunky dory in the world and that it doesn't guarantee your life will be smooth and full of happiness. However, the film misses the mark on the comedy, which this film is supposed to contain, and the overall pacing is pretty slow. It won't hurt to give this film a look, but there are better than this.

Grade C-
