After making a name for himself with the gritty action spectacular City on Fire, Ringo Lam returns to directing comedies with his film featuring Sammo Hung. When humble noodle stand owner Fat Goose (Hung) is the unfortunate witness to a mob hit, he is convinced by ambitious cop Pitt (Vincent Wan Yueng) to testify against the killer, Lam Man-fu (Tommy Wong Kwong-leung). When Lam is freed on bail, Goose soon regrets his act of civic responsibility when his apartment goes up in flames and Lam's thugs are threatening his life. It turns out that the gangsters have a series of incriminating photos of prominent Hong Kong residents, including Pitt's boss, as part of an extortion ring run by a shady attorney. Soon Pitt comes to the aid of Goose and squares off against the baddies.
