It is triad boss, Hung’s dying wish that his son be found. Sam has always romanticized triads so when Hung’s men come looking for the prodigal son in Thailand, he gladly takes on the role. It is his gay housemate Georgie, played by Daniel Wu, who is the true heir however. Georgie was sent away as a child to study in France by his homophobic father, something Georgie struggles with throughout the movie. Fortunately, there is no wailing and gnashing of teeth here. It is a slapstick ride through mistaken identity and ubiquitous love triangles.

Another triad boss’ daughter Julie, played by Karen Mok falls for Georgie. Georgie still loves his boyfriend back in Thailand. Sam loves Julie. Sam is supposed to be gay. The love stories intertwine as rival gang member Chow Siu, played by Stephen Fung, tries to eradicate the new threat to his supremacy.

There are two lovely cameos by Nicholas Tse Ting-Fung and Sammi Cheng Sau-Man. To perfection, the two stars send up their roles in HK celebritydom and some recent films. Mafia references are met by Latino music, which seem to imbue Stephen Fung’s Chow Siu with an Antonio Banderas-like Desperado feel as his long hair flows and guns blaze. Chapman To Man-Chan and Law Kar-Ying play the Simpsons of the piece -- the dysfunctional family unit that most would love to emulate.
