  The beloved king of Hong Kong comic book characters, Old Master Q, is back in live action again by popular demand. This hilarious sequel to Mr Funny-bone finds him, and his delightful sidekick "Big Potato", opening an Old-fashioned healing clinic - leading to a fun and fascinating clash (cultural and otherwise) when the old ways smack face first into ultra-modern Hong Kong. But, this being the great Mr Funny-bone, he triumphs in spite of himself and his large-cranium companion.

Good silly fun Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
With 1978's "Mr. Funny Bone Strikes Again", Lao Fuzi (Wang Sha) and his pal Big Potato (Ngai Tung Gwa) return to reap more hilarious hijinks. The sequel turns out to be superior to the original Mr. Funnybone film because it has something resembling a plot.

Lao Fuzi is a healer practicing a goofy version of traditional Chinese medicine. An unscrupulous antiquities dealer, Mr. Gu (Lee Sau Kei), has a customer who seeks the mate to an old vase he owns. The customer is willing to pay Gu big money for the long lost mate. When Gu learns that Lao Fuzi owns the missing vase, he hires a trio of inept thugs to steal it. The three would-be burglars, however, prove to be no match for the antics of Lao Fuzi and Big Potato.

Lao Fuzi himself sells the vase to the grateful customer, then plans to donate the $2 million proceeds of the sale to a local hospital. The trio of thugs have other ideas; they seek to steal the money for themselves. They, of course, are not counting on the metaphorical minefield that awaits when Lao Fuzi and Big Potato unleash more chaos upon them.

The funniest moments in "Mr. Funnybone Strikes Again" arise when Lao Fuzi's pretzel logic confronts the challenges of daily living, as in an extended restaurant scene in which Lao Fuzi seeks revenge for the restaurant proprietor's devious ways. Veteran actress Hui Ying Ying practically steals the show with her futile attempts to get the upper hand over Lao Fuzi. Very entertaining.

It holds its own... Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
'Mr. Funny Bone Strikes Again' is the 1978 sequel to the Shaw Brothers-produced 'Lo Fu Ji/Mr. Funny Bone' made in 1976, a film based on Alphonso Wang Chak's beloved comic strip characters. Unfortunately, for the audience, the Ms. Chen character and actress Li Ching are no-shows, but Lo Fu Ji/Master Q(Singaporean comedian Wang Sha), Potato(Ai Tung Kwa), and Mr. Chin(Liu Lu Hua) stir up enough heroism and shenanigans to keep us entertained. Kwei Chi Hung hands the director's chair over to Wang Feng for this installment; the directing signature between the two feels different. Lo Fu Ji and his pals earn HK$2,000,000 when they sell a valuable Mandarin vase to a collector. When their wealth attracts thugs, golddiggers, decadence, and calamities, Lo Fu Ji and Potato plan on donating the rest of the money to a hospital. However, a gang of criminals won't make it easy for Wang Chak's beloved creations to donate the money to charity.
The humor in this Lo Fu Ji sequel isn't as vulgar as the prior film, but it does get offensive at times. Lo Fu Ji tells a young, female artisan that the black smear on his botched painting is "an African monk looking for a raven at night". Also, there's a scene where a guy in a turban(Indian, perhaps)beats up a "burglar". From a certain camera angle, it looks very "lewd"! Humor does have a "dark" side(no pun intended). There's a humorous bit where Lo Fu Ji comes to the aid of Potato, Mr. Chin, and some gwailo tourists as they're being mugged by thieves. The gwailos toss Lo Fu Ji up in the air and they yell,"Hip-hip-hooray! You're a hero!" Then, out of the blue, the tourists get inside the tour bus and they let Lo Fu Ji crash into the pavement! I love the bit where a thug is beating up Potato and Lo Fu Ji subdues the thug by hurling needles/vaccines into the thug, as if he were in a pub, or something. Minutes later, the thug turns into a werewolf-like creature!
Not only is Li Ching a no-show, but this film lacks the 'Looney Toons/blaxploitation' music that was sprinkled into the first film. The stock music in this film still works, though. Also, the whole Lo Fu Ji "canon" is like liver: it's an acquired taste that won't appeal to everyone. Still, Wang Sha and Ai Tung Kwa do a good job at portraying flesh-and blood versions of Wang Chak's cartoon characters and Wang Feng does a capable job as director. Enjoy!
