In this pseudo-spinoff from Winner and Sinners, Richard Ng Yiu-hon and John Sham co-star as two bumbling cops who can't do anything right on the job, with Philip Chan's Inspector character from Winners making an appearance as their superior. From mistaking a young girl whose cousin died as a rape victim to accidentally sabotaging crime scenes, the pair's silly onscreen antics may have given the police force a bad name, but they also helped the duo skyrocket in popularity. Of course, the two cops do get lucky enough to solve a case from time to time. How else would they be able to return for three sequels?
