Tricky Brains ★★★★½

Stephen Chow as the "Handsome Tricks Expert" hired by heel Waise Lee to disrupt Andy Lau's romance with Rosamund Kwan by convincing Lau and his father, Ng Man-tat, that Chow is Ng's long lost son and having him sabotage every aspect of their professional lives. Tasteless, crude, silly, it's peak Wong Jing and maybe the best film of Chow's mo lei tau period, building sublime nonsense out of the simplest of filmic elements. Half the jokes are Cantonese puns I can't understand. It doesn't matter.
