Ghost comedies are genre blenders emblematic of the remarkable creative energy of 1980s Hong Kong, combining elements of East and West, old and new into hauntingly unique entertainment. In Haunted Cop Shop , Ricky Hui is partnered with Jacky Cheung, playing a pair of bumbling policemen who find themselves upholding law and disorder in a zany world of twisted urbanity. Hui is the dim-witted half of the comedy team, playing against the smartass half embodied by Cheung, and he shines with his usual understated comic animation of the common man. The film is directed by Jeff Lau and scripted by Wong Kar-wai.
