Summary: Good

I could have sworn I reveiwed this one already, but it appears I didn't. I won't go further than the other reviewers, but all I will say that this is very funny, and probably the last GOOD film the Hui brothers did. Very funny, but unfortunatly, hard to find now.

Rating: 3.5/5

Summary: PRetty good

The basic plot is about a Magazine company who is going out of business. Ricky Hui is hired by some weird circumstances and off they go CREATING news worthy enough for people to buy, but which story will they choose, especially since they all have consciences??

A good laugh with the Hui's brothers at their best.
The standout is Ricky Hui, who looks great at his role and plays it very effectively. A old movie which can still give you a few good hard laughs!!

Remake of the classic Private Eyes with a twist: the setting is nowa failing tabloid magazine. Sam plays the newly hired reporter and Michael is his chief editor. When sales of the magazine go south, the Hui brothers must do whatever they can to save the magazine.
