Somehow i found the stupid humour in this stupid film to feel like a
Hong Kong New Year slapstick comedy.
Just remember to disconnect your brain for about 89 minutes or so.
Burlesque nonsense humour about the pretty girl Wendy
(Chingmy Yau Suk-Ching) arriving to Hong Kong to live with her
only relative alive, her sloppy drunkard of an aunt, Big Beer (Deannie
Big Beer is an unliked nightclubb hostess manager and an old prostitute
on the skids. She's getting fired by her clubowner boss
if she can't come up with new attractive girls. At this point Wendy
arrives and her auntie begs her on her kness to please help
her for just 2 days and work as a hostess at the club, and immediately
Wendy becomes the most popular girl at the club.
Wendy lives in a house with her aunt Big Beer, her aunts
Landlord Charles Xiao (Lawrence Cheng Tin-Shui), his choleric sister
Tracy Xiao (Carol Cheng Yu-Ling). The reason being that Charles is to
timid to evict Big Beer for not paying her rent in 2 years.
The gangster Cannon likes her too and kidnaps her and
Big Beer and will Charles save her ? However, Wendy is equipped
with powerful telekinetic and magical powers and
she can start fires and make things happen with her spells.
Stupid nonsense but i enjoyed it. Why ? Because I'm an Idiot. It was
not a pretentious French film with middle-aged people
sitting around a table eating, drinking and talking, enjoying the sound
of their own voice, so it has to do. Bring it on!
