The Skinny: Stephen Chow demonstrates his superstar talent in one of his funniest comedies of the early nineties.
by Kozo:

Megahit comedy from director Gordon Chan and producer Wong Jing. Stephen Chow stars as Chow Sing-Sing, a veteran SDU cop who gets stuck with the unenviable task of going undercover in high school. His mission: to find the missing gun that belongs to his captain (Barry Wong). His help: fellow undercover cop Tat (Ng Man-Tat) who's doubling as the school's janitor. His obstacles: bratty kids, annoying teachers (including Yuen King-Tan and Paul Chun Pui), evil triads (led by official triad actor Roy Cheung) and bastard fellow cops. His reward: possibly his comely teacher, who's played by the typically gorgeous Cheung Man.

To discuss the subtle merits of this film are near impossible. This is basically a ninety minute opportunity to check out the burgeoning comic charisma of Stephen Chow as he kicks ass, humbles lesser individuals, and generally makes a mockery of the system. Eventually plot does kick in and Sing is called upon to rescue the students and the school, but that's just filler material for the wall-to-wall jokes. Suspension of disbelief or actual dramatic tension is completely forgotten thanks to the joys of Stephen Chow showing up snotty kids and adults with his lighting fast kicks and even faster mouth. Guaranteed to tickle the funny bone of those who actually possess a sense of humor. (Kozo 1995/1997)
