Synopsis: A sales executive accidentally dies and comes back to life in the body of a woman. Hijinks ensue.
This is one of the better CAT III sex comedies and it is well paced and edited. It seems to lose steam near the end but that’s mostly because it crammed so many incidents and situations prior to that point.
Goo Git (Caged Beauties, Unforgetful Holiday, Sex Revenge) has her best showcase here and she commandeers the opening scenes with comic timing, charisma, and full frontal nudity. As with most of the sex scenes there is a humorous aspect, in this case Ah Man is trying to watch the soccer game but Goo Git will not be dissuaded.
Chan Wing-Chi (Skin Striperess) is extremely convincing as the alpha male resurrected as a woman; she must have grown up as a tom-boy. Charlie Cho is very funny and frequently naked, just shy of the full monty. There is an incredible amount of nudity including an aphrodisiac induced orgy at the birthday party.
Universe non anamorphic 1.66:1 widescreen DVD with Cantonese and Mandarin soundtracks. English and Chinese subtitles are burned in. Most likely ported over from the Laser Disc.
One of the few CAT III releases from the boom era that contains virtually no violence or gore. It’s the nudity and the non-PC humor that gives it the edge.
