Jackie Chan, the lawyer, AKA The Ladies Man, gets hired by the bad guy to stall a big case. Jackie falls for his opponent's lawyer and seeks help from his buddies Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao, who almost tear eachother apart on several misunderstood ocassions. Meanwhile, Sammo falls for Jackie's opponent lawyer's sister, also her defedent. Yuen Biao, throughout the movie, is pretty useless and doesn't get to show off like Sammo or Jackie. Yuen Biao has tons of theories; he's always saying the weirdest things, which is supposed to spark some humor, but Sammo simply steals the show with all the humor.

I was a little disappointed that Jackie didn't get together with his secretary, who stood by Jackie through everything. The plot is pretty flawless on the big picture, but if you look at every aspect, there's plenty of flaws. And the fight scenes just aren't very interesting. I nearly dozzed off during the finale, which the box claims "has yet to be matched," but I think it's been matched in every other Jackie Chan movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, mainly due to its silly gags and intentional seriousness at times. The movie could have been longer though
