Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this antic comedy, Michael Hui stars as the editor of a struggling Hong Kong tabloid, the "Truth Weekly." In his never-ending quest to ensure readership, he sometimes has to contrive facts to fit his stories. In this movie, he has assigned one of his reporters (Samuel Hui, Michael's brother in real life) to be the "secret boyfriend" of a popular starlet. In that role, Samuel hides out in bushes only to pop out of them long enough to be photographed with the starlet, and otherwise behaves like a consummate pest - all on the instructions of his conniving boss.
