YesAsia Editorial Description

It's conmen and con games in The Great Pretenders, an early comedy from director Ronny Yu (The Bride with White Hair). Hong Kong Cinema faves Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Simon Yam star as members of an elite swindling team led by Raymond Wong Bak Ming, who plays the nominal "Great Pretender". Their ace in the hole is Amy Yip (Sex and Zen), who uses her feminine wiles to tackle their big mark: a major loan shark who deserves to be taken by this motley band of crooks. Creative scams - including the HK Cinema-mandated cons featuring mahjong - and hilarious, self-effacing performances from the big stars make The Great Pretenders a fun, breezy early-nineties romp from the Hong Kong Cinema fun factory.

First Press comes with a postcard, only available while supplies last.

A downmarket "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
The "Great Pretenders" are a gang of swindlers who come up with complex schemes to cheat rich people out of their dough. Comprised of Wong Seung Chin (Raymond Wong, who wrote the screenplay for the movie), Snake Wai (Tony Leung Chiu Wai), Yip Mei Mei (Amy Yip), and Yam Sai Sung (Simon Yam), the swindlers first set their sights on a the lovely Susan So (Lok Wai), a young woman from Singapore with an inherited fortune. However, Susan is more wily than she appears and she sees through the complicated swindle. The gang then recruits Susan to help them swindle the ruthless loan shark Lung Choi Tan (Leung Tin); for this task, they also need to call in the greatest swindler of all, Mr. Giant (Teddy Robin).

There is lots of over-the-top slapstick humor (mostly provided by Tony Leung, who appears willing to do just about anything for a laugh, and Simon Yam, doing an outrageous homosexual schtick), lots of Amy Yip's cleavage, and lots of mahjong, dominoes, and poker. The English subtitles are remarkably bad, making some of the dialogue impenetrable to those who don't speak Cantonese. "The Great Pretenders" strives only to be a wacky diversion and that's what it provides. If your expectations are modest, you may find it an amusing throw-away comedy.
