Summary: a nice movie, some funny moments and enough celeb's to keep everyone happy!!
With enough stars to think you've been hit by a mallet. The Banquet was made in benefit of the flood victims in China in '91. The movie has the most surprisingly largest amount of cameo/guest appearances we'll probably ever see in a movie. Now the list I mention bellow is all of the actors I KNOW, there's is probably 20-30 actors/actresses I've missed out on or didn't recognize, so sorry if I missed out your fav.

Guest Appearances, well we have Tony Leung Chiu-Wai as Eric Tsang's personal assistant. In reflection of Tony Leung we have producer John Shum as Sammo Hung's personal assistant.

Appearances as Father Tsang's expert's include; Liu Chia-Liang and Kara Hui as Chinese Sword experts. Eric Kot and Jan Lam teach Father Tsang English. Karl Maka makes an appearance as a make up expert for Father Tsang. Simon Yam makes an appearance as some sort of body language expert.

Another celebrity filled moment is where Tsang Siu-Chi has a day dream about the people attending his banquet at first we get some dazzling actresses such as Anita Mui, Sally Yeh and Sylvia Chiang. As the list continues we see Anthony Chan, Michael Hui, Stephen Chow, Gong Li and we even get Alan Tam make an appearance as the prince Allabraba. Heck Tsang even imaging himself as Leslie Cheung!

Other general appearances include Ng Man-Tat, Aaron Kwok, Leon Lai, Maggie Cheung, Andy Lau Tak-Wah, Joey Wong, Teresa Mo, Phillip Chan, Kenneth Tsang, Bill Tung, Lydia Shum, Carina Lau, James Wong Jim, Turtle Wong, Waise Lee, Chin Kar-Lok, Ti Lung, Sandra Ng, May Lo, Lau Siu-Ming, Nat Chan, Wu Fong, Tommy Wong, David Chiang, Leung Ka-Yan, Billy Lau, Teddy Robin, Lowell Lo.

Now after mentioning all that I'm exhausted!

Final Thoughts, a nice movie, some funny moments and enough celeb's to keep everyone happy. Enjoy!
