Synopsis by Robert Firsching

Hong Kong filmmaker-stunt man Blackie Ko directed and starred in this standard buddy comedy with Jacky Cheung and Stephen Chiau as Curry and Pepper, two cops who, despite being almost constant embarrassments to the department, are very good at what they do. Trouble begins when a pretty TV reporter named Joey Law (Ann Bridgewater) convinces the men's superior to let her join them on patrol for a few days to research a story about police work in the high-crime Tsimshatsui region. Naturally, both of them fall in love with her, but the fact that she likes Curry more than Pepper begins to affect the longtime partners' friendship. Their strained relations must take a back seat to police work, however, as the officers investigate an arms-dealing ring and find themselves targeted for murder by its evil kingpin, Abalone (Ko). Eric Tsang co-stars with Barry Wong and Michael Dinga.
