Look, Hong Kong comedy can be really, really weird and awkward and hokey. In a way I've had to get used to it for the movies I watch, but in this movie it's so well done that this might be the funniest HK movie I've ever seen. It's a Sammo Hung movie all the way (star and director) and he never disappoints. This is easily one of his best movies. It's also fitting this features Richard Ng, possibly the funniest actor I've ever seen in an HK movie. This is more than a comedy though. The action is truly A-level and will not disappoint. Some really great stuff that I haven't seen before. Just as an example, for both the comedy and the action, loved the entire nightclub sequence early in the movie.

I had low expectations for this movie when I planned on seeing it...and the movie REALLY exceeded them! I'm not going to lie...I was truly entertained throughout the movie...although there were some outrageous moments! This movie deserves a 3.5 because it's a bit messy and brainless here and there...but everything else was perfectly fine! I enjoyed this movie and i'm not afraid to say it! The movie had a clever script along with action, fights, and laughs that were more than adequate! This brings us back to the beginning of the golden decade in Hong Kong cinema!

A truly weird comedy. Most of it is a light hearted tale about pick pockets getting into trouble when they aim too high, but then it ends with a lot of bloody violence.

The fight at the end is pretty good, but the juxtaposition of the killing mixed with slapstick humour is really off. The ending is especially off kilter, as they simply narrate what happens to the characters.

Nothing at all to do with the British Carry On films. This is a great Sammo Hung comedy which gets all serious in the 2nd half. Plenty of action and scraps to keep everybody entertained.

Amazing 1982 Sammo Hung-directed action/comedy. Rice Pot (Sammo), Chimney (the unsung Frankie Chan) and

One of my favorite Sammo Hung films(both as director and/or actor). Such a fun, and hilarious romp with a great blend of Sammo's comedy and action. Such a violent climax! I love it!
