YesAsia Editorial Description

In the recent years, Yuen Wah pairs up with Yuen Qiu to create a number of successful comedies. Previously their Kung Fu Mahjong series has offered movie fans much fun with Chinese people's favorite pastime - mahjong. In Bet to Basic, another hilarious title on Mahjong, Yuen Wah proves himself to be just as capable in entertaining the audience even without Yuen Qiu. With Jordon Chan and Rain Lee leading the cast, Bet to Basic will offer some amusing scenes in which mahjong masters will show off their stunning skills in shuffling mahjong tiles. Gambling is an established topic in Hong Kong cinema, but the first-time director Paul Chung, also an experienced scriptwriter, has incorporated some innovations into Bet to Basic to make it more enjoyable than the audience would have expected.

Good-for-nothing gangster Dragon (Chin Kar Lok) discovers that his newly arrived cousin Roy (Jordon) is a super lucky guy. Roy can win huge money from playing mahjong even if he knows nothing about the game. Mahjong master Wah (Yuen Wah) sees Roy's potential and takes Roy to be his apprentice. Roy has a crush on Wah's another apprentice Pui (Rain Lee), without recognizing Pui as the undercover sent by the wicked and aggressive Mie Luo (Samuel Pang), who wants to make himself "The King of Mahjong" at all cost...

Inferior gangster Flying Dragon (Chin Ka Lok) has a bad habit of gambling, he thus offends the three great gamble deceivers. Luckily his younger cousin, Roy (Jordon Chan), who comes back from America is extraordinarily lucky, he can win every round of the game and saves Flying Dragon. Flying Dragon hence brings Roy to Mahjong casino to earn money for him. Roy observes the rivalry between two Mahjong geniuses Hua San Yuan (Yuen Wah) and Ge He Qing (Eric Kot) by chance, he witnesses the fate of them – one turns to be insane and one becomes bankrupt, and decides not to snatch the reputation of “The King of Mahjong”. Though Roy has no desire to seize the fame, his good luck elicits the worry of aggressive Mie Luo (Pang Jin Chi) who then plans to harm Roy....

This customer review refers to Bet to Basic (US Version)
ugh.. Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
UNORIGINAL! it was like kung-fu mahjong 1! it was a pain to watch, but i give kudos to the funny parts, but admit it anything involving yuen wah&jordan chan is funny. the storyline was almost to exactly like kung-fu mahjong 1, except for the fact the lead [chan]is lucky instead of having an extremely good memory [roger kwok]. if you already watched kung-fu mahjong 1, there's really no point in watching Bet to Basic.
