Movie Info

Alfred Cheung spins this madcap comedy about an embittered Canadian ex-boxer named Chien Pao (Sammo Hung), who is desperate to pay off a band of loan sharks. Desperate to come to Canada to be with her true love Peter, Jade Li (Maggie Cheung Man-yuk) agrees to marry the pugilist for a price. Unfortunately, soon after Jade arrives, Peter skips town with her cash. Pao grudgingly lets her stay with him and soon the two are looking for anyway to make money, including volunteering for bizarre medical research experiments. Later, Pao agrees to fight in an illegal match with the Thai boxer who stole his wife. Though Pao eventually cleans his clock, Jade has less luck working as a mud wrestler. When they deposit their earnings, the bank gets held up and Jade is taken hostage.
