The owners of a Hong Kong television station play a legalistic trick on new employees. They are forced to sign a piece of paper which legally binds them to work for the station for eight years, no matter what. In this comedy, Chi-Man (Michael Hui) gets together with an inventor and a magician to try to steal the contract back from the station even though it is in a heavily guarded safe. Chi-Man uses multiple disguises to distract the safe-keepers; in one he is a dancer-singer auditioning for a role, and another finds him dressed up as a very sexy lady. This film was a number one box-office hit in Hong Kong at the time of its release. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
