Review
by Kozo:
     There must have been some dynamite stuff smoked when they came up with this one. Blacky Ko directed this amazingly peverse comedy which is notable for the fact that Wong Jing's name IS NOT on it. The set-up is simple enough: Dicky Cheung and Eric Tsang play ex-cons Chez and Ham, who decide to open up a "revenge" business. However, they get hired to kill Joey Wong, which is impossible because she's Joey Wong. The planned hit gets botched, Eric gets hospitalized and Dicky gets taken to Joey's home because she mistakes him for a lost twelve year-old. The contract is still valid, but Dicky becomes sweet on Joey. Featuring Cheung Man as the nanny and Ng Man-Tat as Joey Wong's head of security and a resident pedophile. That's right: a pedophile security chief played by Ng Man-Tat. Someone pinch me.
     What goes on in this film can hardly be described, much less believed. It's just so incredibly bizarre and out there that you have to wonder what the hell they were thinking. One could call this offensive trash, but this film is so amazingly wacked out that one can only applaud the chutzpah on display. Just think: some people actually took the time to write this puerile comedy that features Ng Man-Tat coming on sexually to Dicky Cheung, who he thinks is a twelve year-old. And, these people actually convinced Joey Wong, Cheung Man and others to appear in it. And, they managed to edit, score and release the film in both theaters AND on home video. Wow. When you think about it, somebody should probably get an award for Chez 'n Ham. They shouldn't be recognized, but they should definitely get an award. (Kozo 1996)
