Three brothers try to make ends meet when they concoct plans to be one big family of eight. Cooking expert Mr. Fong goes through high and low to court Opera performer Wu Hsiu-Fang, Gigolo wanna-be "Handsome" Lung has one girlfriend too many and Yuppie San just wants to be happy with girlfriend Ying-Ying.Written by
This is a classic comedy from Hong Kong that is a great one for the entire family. Here, three brothers band together to try to be one big happy family: culinary chef Mr. Fong (Raymond Wong) goes through high and low to court Opera performer Wu Hsiu-Fang (Bobo Fung), Gigolo wanna-be "Handsome" Lung (Chow Yun-Fat) tries to juggle his life with multiple girlfriends and Yuppie San (Jacky Cheung) just wants to be happy with girlfriend Ying-Ying.
Action and drama star Chow Yun-Fat did a fantastic and hilarious performance as "Handsome" Lung, proving that he could act outside the norm. His on-screen chemistry with Carol 'Do Do' Cheng was spot-on and with Cherie Chung was comical. Much of the acting was great, humor and comedy were done tastefully and the plot has great momentum.
Throw in some Chinese opera spoofs, prank telephone calls, brothers ganging up on a bully, wild parties and a catchy theme song soundtrack sung by Jacky Cheung (in the theme of the Blue Danube waltz), this is one big fun family comedy with an all-star cast you don't want to miss!
