To the Nines...
Two wily brothers descend upon an unsuspecting town with the sole purpose of corrupting it and reaping the profits, while the third and youngest brother, Leslie Cheung, finds himself playing the love game with the town beauty and the town of Choi Hung will never be the same.
Ninth Happiness is yet another silly lunar New Year's comedy and a musical of sorts to boot, stuffed with wackiness from end to end. Oh, yes, and a little kung fu too. There's no real rhyme or reason to it because it's not meant to have any. This film was done purely for entertainment purposes even if it sometimes pushes things a bit at times.
Leslie Cheung is always fun to watch even in the slightest fare which is what Ninth Happiness is, and Amanda Lee is particularly goofy as the lustful family maid.
All in all a fairly fluffy piece which leaves little to the imagination but manages to find some laughs along the way.
