description

Ricky and Fatso are friends in need. They are in dire need of money since they are only paid slave wages at the bottling factory. They buy a lottery ticket and become millionaires a night. Some spending sprees follow. In one of these nights out in town, Ricky suddenly has a stomachache. In no time, a quack doctor diagnoses the seizure as terminal cancer. Ricky seriously considers suicide. On a rooftop from which he is supposed to make a plunge, he saves a poor man from suicide by giving the latter all the money he has. In gratitude, the newly rich man promises to hire a killer to finish his suffering benefactor. The quack doctor discovers his mistake. Ricky and Fatso are rejoicing again only to be interrupted by the dutiful killer, so they start their escape...

One of Best John Woo Movie.
Before the 'A Better tomorrow'. John Woo was very famous for Comedy movie. He was big shot. His First comedy movie 'Money Crazy' was Most biggest hit moive in 1977.

He made pretty lots of comedy movie this time. And most of them were very success. So in late 70's he wanted to make 'The Killer' or Something like cop action movie. But at that time nobody make does kind of movie. Movie company doesn't want adventure with him.

even he had success all the time he can't make other kind of movie. Just like jackie chan did. So this kind of situation make him angry. so he put this anger on this movie.

Like any other legendary collection. It has poor video quallity. But I think this is John woo's Best comedy. And John woo himself saids this movie is his favorite comedy movie too. In the last scene it has spectacle slapstick action scene. I never saw anything like this before or even after
