Summary: Indeed funny

Michael Hui is a lowly mushroom farmer in his small town in China. On a trip to Hong Kong he learns what luxuries a real hotel should have. Such small things as automatic doors, indoor pools and elegant accomodations make him wish to start such a hotel in China. When he returns, he sells everything, and starts up a hotel by himself. A foreinger encourages him to bring someone else on board with background, but he goes ahead and does everything on his own. Hiring friends and family that need jobs, he puts himself in an awkward position of providing for everyone. This makes for a number of funny situations in keeping the hotel up as well as his sanity.

Before i saw this film, i saw a small trailer for it. It featured a distressed man comming into patio area with a pool to find a number of his friends sitting around fishing. He forces them out in order to make room for a special guest. Much of the movie is filled with this type of situational comedy that is very enjoyable.

I had a lot of fun watching this one. It's filled with very basic humor, such as him asking what type of dog the hot dogs were during his trip to Hong Kong. A comedy to check out. 6.5/10
