Introduction by Yuen Woo-ping
After practically inventing the kung-fu comedy genre, director Yuen Woo-ping eventually added fantasy elements to the mix, starting with this absolutely batshit-crazy cult classic. The wild and loose plot involves a Qing dynasty official in conflict with the emperor that results in the deaths of both his wife and the prince. He finds another child and makes it look like he is the prince. At the heart of this, the grown fake prince meets an odd bickering couple practicing kung-fu magic and all sorts of wacky antics ensue. Nonstop martial-arts zaniness not to be missed!
