Inspector Chu (Michael Hui) has long been known by the name of Chocolate Inspector because of his addiction to a popular chocolate confection. He is also a bumbling idiot of the most incredible kind, who can't see a thief stealing something right in front of him. In fact, he failed to notice a whole car park full of such thieves, which is why he has been demoted to the police's missing-persons bureau. Unfortunately for everyone who crosses his path, he is hot on the trail of the kidnapped son of a television cooking-show star. Together with his similarly retarded partner, he practically single-handedly demolishes a beauty pageant while chasing the bad guys. This comedy did record business in its native Hong Kong and won "Best Actor" and "Best Screenplay" awards at the 1986 Hong Kong Film Awards.
