Fighting to Survive
Hong Kong 2002
Directed by Dayo Wong.

There was a time when mere mention of comedian Dayo Wong was enough to make me break out into hives. But not anymore -- I take back everything bad I ever said about him -- this movie is a gem. Wong plays a grown man who has never left Tien Mun, because he cannot stand to be in any moving vehicle. He concocts scheme after scheme in an attempt to get rich without ever leaving. FIGHTING TO SURVIVE is a throwback to the comedies of Michael Hui, a small potato with big schemes, caught in difficult situations, always trying to come out on top. The funniest comedy of the year, with a great ensemble cast including Sonija Kwok and the ever-versatile Anthony Wong.

Rating: Recommended (Recommended)
