Synopsis: Sing (Stephen Chow) is an avowed conman who’s forced by vicious loan shark Tai Te (Roy Cheung) to team up with silly female grifter Betty (Teresa Mo) to rip off a luxurious vacant house. But the pair get caught inside by the house’s owners (Ng Ma and Tien Niu). Luckily, they’re expecting a rich Mainland visitor named Jackie, so Sing is happy to assume that role to take them for all they’re worth! But the couple are also conmen, also working for the same loan shark, and neither has any idea what they’re getting into! When they introduce the buxom Amy Yip as their daughter, this stacked deck of comic circumstances seems ready to collapse! Who will con who first?
