Troublesome Night 9
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Ivan Lai.


Picking up right where TN 8 left off, Bud Pit (Simon Loui) has finally found a job, working nights on a casino boat. Maggie Cheung Ho-Yi is a gambling addict who is trying to get rich for love (not quite sure how this works). The Bud family decide to help her out, but not without first enduring a completely lame subplot of Loui getting possessed by a ghost child. Finally Bud Lung (Law Lan) channels the God of Gamblers into her other son, Bud Gay, to help Cheung win big. The point of the exercise is for the most part missing. Ivan Lai is completely inept at direct gambling scenes. Maggie Cheung -- NOT the famous one -- is a good actress, she finds better material in this years HEADLINES. Simon Loui, the last member of the original Troublesome Night ensemble cast, ends his sequential run in the series with this one.
