Wong Jing's parody of the novel Duke of Mount Deer is a funny movie with some amazing wire fu action sequences. Stephen Chow stars as a man who is just an ordinary person surrounded by extremely powerful people. He is given a mission to steal a secret book, and it's a suicide mission. He has to steal it from an evil General played by Elvis Tsui. Chow fakes being a eunuch so that he can steal the book, but instead he accidentally becomes good friends with the Emperor. The group that sent Chow on the mission wants to kill the Emperor. Why am I trying to explain the story? Its probably the least important thing about this movie. Its all about the nonstop jokes and amazing wire fu action sequences. The fights have some crazy stuff going on. If you are a fan of wuxias then you are really gonna dig this. And the comedy is also very good. In the second half of the movie alone I remember laughing outloud at least 10 times. Its a crazy ride all the way through. Highly recommended to Stephen Chow fans.
