Clarence Fok Yiu-leung directs this comedy about a pair of teenaged losers named Sam (Chu Kin-kwan) and Michael (Louis Koo Tin-lok) who are completely obsessed with real-life pin-up model Francoise Yip Fong-wah). The two buy every magazine she appears in, pick up every illicit CD-ROM of her, show up at all of her public appearances, and eventually lands a job as extras in a movie shoot. Sam and Michael are absolutely on cloud nine when not only are they approached by Yip, but also she invites them out to dinner. Unfortunately, their night to remember proves to be a ruse to rid Yip of her overzealous fans: she has them beat up by thugs. Yet, her plan backfires when they whup the thugs and kidnap the star. Even though held prisoner by these two sweaty teens, she decides that they are far better than her agent because the pair didn't rape her and because her agent is blackmailing her with a sex tape. The dastardly agent eventually gets his comeuppance when the three kidnap him and sodomize him with a baseball bat.
