Movie Info

In Hong Kong of 1969, three detectives: Director, Fugu, and Sam live a normal life. They work, eat, sleep, and live in their huge office/apartment on the second floor of an office building. They normally go out to fight crime. One case, however, changed their lives greatly. Fugu brings home a magic lamp and some other broken antiques after a tussle with two thieves at an antique shop. Thinking the lamp will grant him some wishes, he rubs it and wishes to marry his cousin, Jane. He later leaves for the US. Right after he leaves, a friendly witch named Harmy BoBo comes out of the lamp and tries to grant Sam and the Director the wishes. Only Fugu, however, can have the wishes since he rubbed the lamp first. BoBo does not know Fugu left the country, and Sam and Director does not know BoBo is a witch. BoBo decides to spend a few nights with the two detectives. She later gets robbed by the Lotus Seed Gang and leaves her twin cousins (who are originally chopsticks) behind. The twin cousins soon become part of the gang. Trouble begins at this point. While BoBo tries to stop her cousins' criminal acts, the two detectives fight the gang. It's not long when Fugu returns and BoBo's reptilian boyfriend arrives. Then, more adventures follow.

Audience Reviews for Gwai ma kwong seung kuk (Fantasia)

Before watching I had read reviews stating that this was a great homage to 1970's HK cinema and a hilarious romp... Well I guess I haven't seen enough HK cinema yet because most of the humor in this film was lost to me. I mean maybe if I had grown up watching the Litter Bug ads on TV I might have found the corny CGI dinosaur funny, but no the Jurassic Park spoof was just lost on me. Their is some general humor in here but not enough to make it worthwhile to the uneducated.
