Last night around 2:30 am I was flipping through the channels and came across this classic 1991 HK movie showing on Mei Ah's movie channel:
Dance with the Dragon' ( 與龍共舞 ), a Wong Jing produced early 90s comedy w/ Andy Lau ( 劉德華 ), Cheung Man ( 張敏 ) and Ng Man-tat ( 吳孟達 ).
Andy Lau is a billionaire playboy tychoon who falls off a yacht and washes up in a Lantau village and is mistaken for a illegal Mainlander immigrant. Much hilarity ensues... lots of sit-com level comedy as Andy goes w/ the Lantau village people to his own company's office and tries to avoid divulging his true identity, etc. The whole film is very typical Wong Jing...
Actually I was amazed when I was watching it because with the exception of Stephen Chow, it was almost entirely the same cast as 1990's '
God of Gamblers 2', which coincidentally (or not) happened to have been on earlier in the night on the same channel. Both movies even feature
Tan Lap-Man ( 單立文 ) as the universal super A-hole villain with the strange name: '
Hussein' in GoG2 and '
Mister Shi'(first name Mister, last name Shi) in DwtD!
One of the most interesting things to me is seeing retro HK... big cell phones, bizarre fashion, old skyline, etc. Back then I'm sure Lantau was a lot different than it is now (w/ bridges, subway, the new airport and disney land, etc). I'll give it a 6/10 on the entertainment scale...
