I just discovered that Sammo has a brother !!

And each of his three sons is an actor and they could be twins (I don't know how it's called for three childre who were born on the same day) and the one called Timmy Hung looks like his father in one of the pictures shown on hkmdb.

He is also the father of a daughter, but it seems that she is not an actress.

I too need to find this movie !!! 

 

Me too, Sammo Hung might be a master of comedy Kung Fu, but Richard Ng is also a master at the art of comedy/comedic fighting too, a real clash of the titans.

I wish I could post the video I did where there was a "you know" counter for everytime Sammo said "you know" in his HKL DVD interview. Sadly that video is gone. I'm glad Sammo is still working and that people still post here. It's been a while since I joined these forums but I'm glad to be back :D

That was your video cool. I didn't know that. Well "you know" I enjoyed that video so very much that "when I was" 23 "years old" I downloaded that video, "you know", because I was worry that "you know" it might get taken down. "You know", I hope you don't mind me reposting it here? 

Well here it is "you know":

I'm so glad you liked it, When I made the video I didn't know how to create a counter onscreen so I manually increased the number of "you knows" by writing a new number every time he said it :)

An underrated comedy. Almost planting the seeds for the type of humour they'd use in the 80s.
