Norman Law Man directs this affable kung fu comedy about the wisecracking Lun Man-chui (Dicky Cheung), who is a master in japes, snipes, and witty insults. His family forces him to put his mental agility to the test and study to become the first certified Cantonese scholar. His rival is a handsome kung fu master named Liu Sin-hoi (Aaron Kwok), who is more than Lun's equal in terms of wit. When their teacher learns that he is being pursued by a dastardly agent from the East Chamber, the two put their differences aside and battle against their newfound enemy. Vivian Chow, Ng Man-tat, Leung Kar yan, and Gordon Lau also appear.
