So. There is this one local station that plays various Hong Kong or Chinese films every week (this is where I first saw 'Super Model'). Some flop. Others leave me wanting more.

This film is among the latter by far -- even with the atrociously bad grammar and syntax of the subtitling (which may or may not have been provided by the channel). Actually, in some ways that's what made it even more entertaining; however, I will still recommend it one way or the other.

Because of the random nature of what is played on the channel I haven't really built up enough of a repertoire of Hong Kong comedies to really accurately name a similar film, but I do recommend "Afraid of Nothing: The Jobless King" (English Title; 1999) for having an apparently very similar sense of humour.
