In this entertaining Hong Kong comedy-action-drama, five creatively-named criminals (Teapot, Vaseline, Exhaust Pipe, Curly Jerk, and Ranks) get out of prison and decide to "go straight" by starting a cleaning business. One of their customers is the underworld counterfeiter "Boss Chau," also released from prison but still committed to his chosen vocation. An ace detective (Jackie Chan) is about to grab Chau's counterfeiting plates when the cleaning crew accidentally make off with the plates while doing Chau's house. Their troubles only increase when they learn that the younger sister of one of them (and love interest of three) has been kidnapped by the rival gang leader "Boss Man" and is being held in exchange for the printing plates. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide

Average 80s HK comedy by danleary25 December 10, 2003 - 9:58 PM PST

This film is not as accessible as other Hong Kong kung fu comedies like the first Police Story or Shaolin Soccer. The viewer will need a preset love, acceptance or resilience for hammy 80s Asian pop culture. Not to lessen its place as a classic along Sammo Hung and Jackie Chan history. Scenes of Jackie on roller skates are the most stunning and all the fights and fun that make these movies attractive are here. The only possibly negative element is while other more popular films of this style succeed by refusing to take themselves too seriously, this film forgets to take anything seriously and results in often painful camp. A must see for fans of the genre, but with Jackie in less than five scenes casual fans can leave this at the bottoms of their lists.
