Lee Lik-chi spins this madcap parody of Tsui Hark's smash kung fu saga Once Upon a Time in China. Wong Fei-hung here is seen as a rube who is completely talentless in kung fu. Yet through the vigilance of his band of assistants -- So (Ng Man-tat), Porky Wing (Eric Tsang Chi-wai), and Leung Foon (Simon Yam Tat-wah) -- Wong (Alan Tam Wing-lun) has the reputation of being a fearsome master. When Wong's arch enemy, "Bad Egg" Ken Shek (Tong Leung Kar-fai), procures some choice opium from seedy Western businessman Indiana Jones, Wong et al roll into action. Meanwhile, Aunt Yee (Teresa Mo Shun-kwan) shows up at his doorstep looking to marry herself out of debt.
