Synopsis: The first twenty minutes of Stephen Chow’s latest film are befuddling in that they appear to head nowhere. The non-sensical belly laughs of his usual antics are gone. Instead we get a bare minimum plot and unfamiliar characters. Then it gets better. Chow is Wan Tin-Sau, a professional extra whose attention to his craft make him unbearable to work with. Twice he gets banned from the set of the latest action picture from action star Sister Cuckoo (Karen Mok). Enter Lau Piu-Piu (Cecilia Cheung Pak-Chi), a coarse club girl who approaches Sau for acting lessons to better her “”professional”” career. He helps her, but not without some difficulty, and they begin a small romance. However certain truths conspire to keep them apart and Sau finds himself alone — until he gets a call from Sister Cuckoo, who wants him for her next movie.
