About the Movie
Stephen Chow’s special brand of very modern, very Hong Kong screwball comedy entered a new phase with "Justice, My Foot!", a costume farce set in imperial China. Chow is a shyster with an equally eccentric kung-fu ace of a wife, hilariously played by Anita Mui Yim-fong. Accompanied by Chow’s number one screen sidekick, Ng Man-tat, he manages to bring justice to the court and laughter to the viewer. A resounding success, "Justice, My Foot!" broke box office records to become the number hit of 1992. And it’s no wonder, what with skillful direction by Johnnie To and a visual sheen provided by Peter Pao, who a few years later would become the first Chinese to win a Best Cinematography Oscar for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".
Imperial China/Kung Fu/Courtroom/Comedy
If you are a fan of the Shaw Brothers and Stephen Chow Films, then you will love this mixed film genre plot. It is a comedy at heart, but also has elements of Kung Fu and Courtrrom Drama. The banter between the lawyer husband (Chow) and Kung Fu expert, always pregnant, wife (Mui) is brillantly funny. Subtitles go fast at times.
