Undercover Madams, The
Hong Kong 2003
Directed by Lau Tin Si.


Grace Lam is the police chief, and she sends three of her female officers deep under cover -- or "under the covers" as a salacious ad campaign might have sold the film. One follows a gangster, another a pimp/drug dealer, the third a crooked cop. All three of them fall in love with their targets, have lots of sex with their targets, and eventually, through betrayal, assassination, and suicide, almost everyone winds up dead. Lots of female nudity and sex, between the same group of four or so actors who keep doing it again and again in each film. The plot is actually not too bad, though, lots of drama. Needed to be fleshed out more -- errr, but not in the fleshy way it was. Grace Lam keeps her clothes on, and Sophie Ngan is not in the movie, despite what is listed on every single asian movie sales website I've visited.

Rating: Not Recommended (Not Recommended)

Just a quick note to confirm that Sophie Ngan does, in fact, play the police section chief in this movie, not Grace Lam, so most websites have got it right, I'm afraid. People sometimes get these two confused because of, I think, their similar status in the industry and the interchangeability of the roles they play (some nude, some not).
