Kung fu master Alexander Fu Sheng stars as Romantic Sheng in this slight comedy about Hong Kong's most notorious lothario. Sheng's free-lovin' shenanigans are hampered when his mother shows up unexpectedly along with her business-like nurse Mei (Cherie Chung Cho-hung), demanding that he settle down and marry a woman of her choosing. Not letting filial ultimatums get in the way of his womanizing, Sheng tries to court a beautiful actress by pretending that he's blind. When that inevitably fails, he pursues another lass who not only is being also courted by middle-aged stud but who is also protected by a hateful chaperon. Later, Sheng inevitably finds true love has been literally staring him in the face all along. This film proved to be Alexander Fu Sheng's last film; he died in a car wreck not long after the shoot.
