Story is about two guys, Li (Sam Hui) and Ah Tim (Michael Hui), who are employees at a nut house. One day, a seemingly crazy man named Chiang (Roy Chiao) is institutionalized, and upon entry, Ah Tim and Li notice Chiang has a big bag around him. Ah Tim and Li discover that the bag is full of Ming artifacts. When the crazy old man named Chiang starts babbling about a Princess, Ah Tim and Li somehow figure that Chiang knows the whereabouts of a hidden Ming stash of riches and treasures. Soon, old man Chiang dies of a heart attack, but Ah Tim and Li luck out and find out that the Princess that Chiang is referring to his daughter, Princess (played by Eileen Humphreys). Princess tells Ah Tim and Li about her father's finding of a boat that has sunk off the coast of Hong Kong. Immediately, Ah Tim and Li dive and retrieve the treasures of the sunken ship while contemplating their future of luxury and easy living. Well so they thought. All I can say is that the Ah Tim and Li's future plans are apt to make one crazy and jobless. Taking from the film's title, I guess they did not receive the "message" at all.

Summary: Average

Well, considering their last effort in Games Gamblers Play, this one looks terrible, but only in comparrison. It is again quite funny (with some stupidity), but unfortunatly the story is too uninteresting and therefore becomes a bore to watch most of the time. Watching it again all these years later it certaintly looks dated, a lot more so than Games Gamblers PLay.

Still, Hui fans will love it.

Rating: 3/5
