YesAsia Editorial Description

King of Comedy Stephen Chow starred in a dozen of box office hits in 1990, including All for the Winner, God of Gamblers 2, and the less talked-about but just as amusing When Fortune Smiles. Sandra Ng, just as popular as Chow in comedies, takes up two roles as a rich heiress and a garbage woman, and offers more jokes when the former is impersonating the latter. The story revolves around a massive inheritance from a rich man, whose nephew (Shing Fui On) is plotting to seize the fortune from his daughter Fei Fei (Sandra Ng). He hires a petty thief, nicknamed "Tricky Star", played by no other but the talented comedian Stephen Chow, to court Fei Fei in an attempt to steal all the money. But it turns out that Fei Fei is a fake who works for the rich man's evil son (Anthony Wong Chau Sang). With a strong cast and a hilarious story, When Fortune Smiles promises to deliver an entertaining film to all those who love Stephen Chow comedies.

Product Information

Director: Anthony Chan

  A Dying man is leaving behind him a no good son, a very good daughter, a scheming nephew, a vast fortune and a will which bequeaths everything to the daughter. So the scheming nephew gets Tricky Star to steal the will in order to alter it. The son is not idle either. He finds Phoenix, a garbage collector, to pose as the absent daughter who looks the same as Phoenix. Phoenix flies into Hong Kong and gets into the house in great pomp. She also surprises a thieving Trick Star, who immediately assumes the role of a suitor. That pleases Phoenix immensely....

Quirky slapstick Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
This being an earlier Stephen Chow movie, it initially followed more of a Jackie Chan slapstick comedy without the stunning stunts. However, as the movie went along it seemed to become increasingly quirky where I gradually transitioned from confusion to amusement. The story seemed to fall apart ever-so slightly but ended as happily & abruptly as it could. Subtitles were clear, picture clean. No other special features indicated. Not quite the Stephen Chow style that his later movies have blossomed into. Not really a movie for Anthony Wong fans since he doesn't flex too much of his acting ability & has minimal screen time as the bad 80's hairdo villain.
