YesAsia Editorial Description

Award-winning actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai shows his playful comic side in Royal Scoundrel, a winning action-comedy co-starring Jacklyn Wu Chien Lien. Tony Leung is "Beach Boy," a maverick cop whose unorthodox and incompetent ways are frowned upon by his uptight superiors. His inept partner Mrs. Chow (Ng Man Tat) isn't much help, and is more concerned with taking care of his many, many children. On a routine stakeout, Beach Boy and Mrs. Chow rescue a woman named Ah Yuk (Jacklyn Wu), who was previously abused by her criminal uncle. Ah Yuk has nowhere to go, so she moves in with Beach Boy, who has no idea how to deal with a beautiful, helpful female presence in his dingy bachelor pad. But if he's not careful, the dashing new police lieutenant (Waise Lee) will end up stealing her heart! Can the Beach Boy get it together? Also known by the title Son of the Beach, Royal Scoundrel is an early collaboration between Tony Leung Chiu Wai and director Johnnie To that demonstrates that both award-winning artists know how to have fun once in a while!

Love blooms in a postal box Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
A frequent compaint I have about contemporary films is that too often they suffer from flabby storytelling, making them overlong. 1991's "Royal Scoundrel" has the opposite problem; it crams too much story into only 84 minutes, giving the tale too little time to breathe. However, Johnnie To's crisp direction, an engaging story, and clever characterizations by a quality cast make this one fun to watch.

Beach Boy (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) and Mrs. Chow (Ng Man Tat, whose character has this odd name because, as a widower, he must be both mother and father to his seven young children) are bumbling cops in the Crime Investigation Division, with Mrs. Chow interested primarily in keeping his good-paying job long enough to become a comfortable pensioner. From inside a postal box, they are staking out a dealer in Chinese medicines who appears to have nefarious dealings with a triad crime boss. During the course of the stake-out, Beach Boy's attentions are captured by the dealer's sorely abused stepdaughter, a bespectacled mainlander named Yuk (Wu Chien Lien).

When the crime boss pays a visit to the dealer's store, Beach Boy and Mrs. Chow seek to make arrests, but confusion arises when another team of cops led by Inspector Lee (Waise Lee) intervenes. The crime boss gets away, but the dealer ends up dead. With Yuk having no place to go, Beach Boy eagerly invites her into his home, where she proves her mettle with impeccable housekeeping skills. Inspector Lee soon takes charge of Beach Boy and Mrs. Chow's CID unit, with Beach Boy chagrined at both Lee's imperious leadership and his interest in dating Yuk. Lee sets up an elaborate sting operation to capture the crime boss, but Lee's intentions may not be as straightforward as they appear.

Johnnie To effectively juggles the action, comedy, and romance, but it all feels a bit abbreviated, given the film's short running length. All of the leading actors serve up fine performances. "Royal Scoundrel" definitely is worth a look.
