Summary: a step up from camping...

a collection of comedic scenarios, set in a gigantic (and quite fancy) hotel in singapore.

kent cheng puts cameras in a room that his whife has booked into so he can catch her cheating, but they seem to be broadcasting to a differnt room. a rock band and some bell-boys converge there to watch the 'action'.

in the next story, the hotel management team mistake richard ng for the company president, when he's actually a criminal who's come to rob the hotel.

the next story has eric tsang a womanising coach tour leader who get's into a close scrape with two jilted female psychopaths. my favourite...

finally, we have jacky cheung's fruitless pursuit of joey wang, when he should be expressing his love for his tom-boy co-worker (cecilia yip).

it's quite an odd (and very silly) collection of tales, but i assume that it is inspired by the english 'carry on...' films. any how, if you're in the mood for an all-star ensemble slice of daftness, you could do a lot worse than this.

Summary: Enjoyable comedy

As suggested by the title, you know it’s going to be basically comedy sketches and nothing else. If only these Hong Kong comedies could have been as funny as the British ones. Saying that though, it’s still a pretty funny film, but it’s very dated now. I’ve seen this one plenty of times before, and although at one point I probably quite favoured it, these days I’m not so sure. If you like the old style of comedies, then this is still a reasonably good one, but it’s quite stupid in places, and reminds me more of a Stephen Chow comedy. Loads of stars in this too helps it from getting stuck on the same characters all the time.

[2.5/5]

Summary: Cute ensemble comedy...

This is a fun movie, but there was no real connection between most of the various sub-plots. I found the first part of the film incomprehensible, but perhaps I am just not yet familiar enough with Chinese comedy. The latter part of the film deals with a love story between the dashing and handsome Jacky Cheung and his tomboyish female supervisor who is in love with him. Overall I found the film entertaining, but sometimes silly.
