Yet again, Tony LeungCW plays an abrasive jokey womanizer, whom women seem to find irresistible. Having 7 wives already, he spends much of the movie wooing the luscious Ha to be number eight. The producers chose well to give the early shower scene to the luscious Ng Suet Man (discreetly but gloriously nude) rather than Veronica Yip. And the lovely Ng is the most watchable feature of this film - until the colourful and stunning climactic wirework fight scene. There is a fairly full-on sex scene, where Bo screws the loan shark's wife while chatting up Ha on the phone (do women really fall for this crap ?). Overall, a wild ride. And it would have been twice as good if Tony LWC had NOT played such an arrogant prick.

A court magician claims the only prescription to the Emperor's languor can be found in a wife from the far future. Oversexed Sin Bo, a friend of the monarch, consents to being put into 'The Invincible Time Adventure Wheel', a brass pot which is slung into the air and lands in the 20th century. With policeman Au Chiu (bless you!), he begins his wacky quest...until a power-mad minister from the past sends two martial arts masters to kill the time-traveler. Realizing the danger, Sin Bo's wife comes over with a bunch of tumbling, punching kung fu girls. All of this reaches an acrobatic climax in an amusement park -- and we haven't even hit the end yet!
