Summary: Where's the "Pink Bomb" in this movie?

A born again Christian (Waise Lee) leads a diverse tour group to Thailand for some R 'n R. The group includes a meter maid (Cynthia Khan), teacher (Loletta Lee), cabbie (Lau Ching-Wan), make up girl (Fennie Yuen) and a former Triad (Dayo Wong).

Of course if you've seen enough HK films, taking a trip to Thailand usually turns out to be hazardous to one's health and this film's no different. The group runs into a teenage prostitute (Gloria Yip) who possesses some counterfeit dough which belongs to some Thai gangsters. The gang ends up chasing the entire group, leading to a ho-hum finale.

This run of the mill action/comedy has a couple of things going in it's favor: great chemistry between the group and some hilarious flashback sequences where the various tour group members recall their most unforgetable moments.

Cynthia Khan, Loletta Lee, and Fenny Yuen take a tourbus to Thailand. They pick up a hooker (Gloria Yip) with stolen mob money. Thai gangsters want their money back and the tour guide (Waise Lee) helps them fight for their lives. Very funny fantasy dream sequences and good fights between Khan and the gang.

Summary: NULL

Lau Ching Wan (doing a Robert DeNiro/Taxi Driver shtick) and HK lovelies Cynthia Khan, Loletta Lee, and and a few others take a semi-comedic vacation tour of Thailand, but end up connecting with a larcenous hooker with a bagful of money. Naturally, it belongs to Thai triads, but the girls needn't fear: their born-again tour leader turns out to be a secret agent after counterfeit HK currency! On balance, it makes you wonder whether mental retardation's a prerequisite for being a HK screenwriter, but the girls (especially hard-kicking Cynthia Khan) move this forward -- finally donning army fatigues and bringing the army after the hoodlums.
