One of director Ronny Yu's early films, Mummy Dearest takes on the seemingly Herculean task of putting the squeaky-clean (and very bland) pop star Alan Tam in a role where he plays a demented serial killer. Oh, did I mention that this is a comedy? On paper, this all sounds like a terrible idea, especially given the woeful nature of the majority of Hong Kong comedies released during this period. But, actually, despite some mis-steps, Mummy Dearest does end up being a fairly fun movie to check out.
