Before he was the master of heroic action, John Woo was a master of comedy. In this hilarious action comedy, his signature touches of church settings and spirit of chivalry are already in place. Loner mechanic (Roy Chiao) is fired for boozing and teen idol (Rowena Cortes) is pursued by scoundrels. When they meet, slapstick fun begins. Even animals and Woo, in a cameo, join in the act. And in the spirit of Chinese New Year, even the villains are lovable!
