Another of Hong Kong producer Raymond Wong's all-star New Year's comedies (following 1992's All's Well, Ends Well), this episodic slapstick farce is reminiscent of the American Cannonball Run series, for it, too, contains a large cast goofing around and having more fun making the film than any audience is likely to have watching it. The incomprehensible storyline has a poor scholar named Lam Ka-sing (Wong) marrying into a boorish family, the Chows, and fleeing almost immediately. As he is escaping, Lam saves the life of an expert swordswoman called Jinx (Teresa Mo), who eventually falls for Chow Tung (Sam Hui from Aces Go Places). Before that, however, Tung and his sister Gut (Sandra Ng) throw a party for their sick mother (played in drag by Ricky Hui) who doesn't want to see a doctor until Lam returns home. Meanwhile, Snow White (Rosamund Kwan) escapes her strict father's confinement and falls in love with a magician named David Copper Feel (Leslie Cheung) while dressed as a man. Tung is mistaken for David by Snow White's father (Ng Man-tat), who thinks his daughter is pregnant, and talked into marrying her, but the father eventually realizes he has made a mistake and attempts to call off the wedding. There is a great deal of cross-dressing in the film, and most of it sets up ridiculous plot developments, such as Gut falling for David after seeing him in drag. There are also crude parodies of Basic Instinct, goofy flatulence noises, and so forth.All's Well, Ends Well '97 followed.
