Summary: Horrible Crap !

I bought this thinking it might be
a Lam Ching Ying movie called "Banana
Spirit" such luck.(Apparently it's out of stock or print
right now).

This movie was so bad I promptly threw
the VHS tape in to the trash can...and I
love "trash". You decide......don't
say we didn't warn you. Hopefully will get the one I really wanted back in print or in stock. Any
suggestions out there??

Summary: Wacky cover but nothing special

The cover of this one is misleading to say the least. It promises a wacky comedy starring Alex Man and Dick Wei.
The story is essentially a third-rate copy of Chinese Ghost Story moved to the present day, and is more lame than wacky, and definitely lacks the romatic feel of CGS. Also Alex and Dick only appear in a couple of scenes each, and could better be described as guest stars.
The leading man, Cheung Kwok Keung, suffers from being completely unmemorable. I've seen him in more than a dozen films, but I'm always surprised to see his name in the credits and think "oh, so that was him".

Overall - only if you're bored.
