Directed by Wong Jing and based on the writings of Louis Cha, the films revolve around a cowardly bard who finds himself taking part in a real adventure when he is inducted into a sect of revolutionaries. The cast includes Stephen Chow, Sharla Cheung, Deric Wan, Chingmy Yau, and Natalis Chan.
Synopsis: Wai Siu-bao (Chow) is known for his exciting tales of adventure and heroism, but his own life is quite dull. After rescuing the leader of a revolutionary movement from a police ambush, Wai is recruited into the Heaven and Earth Society and sent to steal secrets from the royal palace.
