| Where's Officer Tuba (1986)
Director: Ricky Lau,
Hung, David Chiang, Jacky Cheung, Joi Wang
Officer Tuba (Sammo Hung) isn't much of a cop.
He's mearly a timid tuba player in the Royal Hong Kong Police marching
band. He is coerced by the ghost of a recently deceased cop (David
Chiang) to capture a group of smugglers who were responsible for the
Sammo teams up with a greenhorn straight out
of the academy (Jacky Cheung, in his first role) to accomplish this
mission and allow the ghost to be reincarnated. More comedy than action
here, with some truly hilarious moments such as Tuba's dinner date with
love interest Joey Wong at Joey's parents house.
This is Jacky Cheung's first movie, and he acts as
if he's on speed. He's totally hyped in every scene, as though the other
actors are performing in slow mo. Luckily, he quickly learned (in later
films) a little more restraint.
