Comedy kingpin Michael Hui ruled the cinema throughout the 70s and 80s, and few of his films were more entertaining or accomplished than The Private Eyes. Hui wrote, directed and starred alongside brothers Samuel Hui (who composed and performed the catchy title theme songs) and Ricky Hui in this action comedy about a detective agency run by notoriously stingy boss Wong Yeuk-sze (Michael). With the help of martial arts expert Kit (Sam) and dopey office worker Puffy (Ricky), Wong takes on adultery, robbery and extortion cases with uproariously funny results! Outrageous sight gags and inventive action provide much of the fun, but the core of Hui's comedy is its razor-sharp satire on local life. Michael Hui’s films are more than just comedies – they’re timeless films that reflect the unique character and personality of Hong Kong and its people.
