| Slapstick Hong Kong comedy
The movie takes place in contemporary Hong Kong. The kid is Chan Bo-Yeung, a street urchin who is the illegitimate son of a rich guy. Rich guy wants him back and current girlfriend wants him killed. This would be a pretty dark movie except for the two crossed eyed guys hired to get the kid.

I came across this movie because of Meg Lam Kin-Ming who played "multi-arm chick" in a Sammo Hung movie. Despite the title "My Kung Fu Master" the movie is a typical nonsense Hong Kong comedy. I liked it but these movies can be an acquired taste. The few fights are mostly slap stick. Bowling balls are used as weapons for possibly the first time ever.

My copy is a DVD that plays as wide screen on a HDTV but the image is manipulated and not true wide screen. It is subtitled in English and Chinese. I suspect it was originally on laser disk.
