潮洲笑漢 (1980)
Little Mad Guy

Summary: The title says it all

He is definitly a little mad guy. Some dumb jokes are intersperced with a few clever ones. Things are pretty standerd until Fatty learns Snake style, then things pick up.
The scenes of his training are cool, and the fights after this point improve remarkably. I remember his master beating some ass with his pipe at one point. It's been a good many years since I watched this, but I remember thinking it ok at the time.
4/10 (Unless your inebriated-raise the tally one point for every drink/substance consumed during viewing)

Summary: Half and half

The first half hour of this flick consist of lots of lame low comedy, disguises and even cross-dressing, with just a few moderate fights. Thing warm up rapidly after 50 minutes, are there are some slam-bang fights after this.

Like many films around this time, this is yet another close take of Drunken Master (they even brought in Simon Yuen for a cameo), but Ng Ming Choi ain't Jackie Chan ! I don't find this guy very likeable, but damn he's a great acrobat. Tiger Yang, in his intro, does fairly well as the villain. So so.
