Future action autuer John Woo spins this critically panned comedy roughly based on Neil Simon's +The Sunshine Boys. The film centers around Ku Ren (Sun Yueh) and Shen Bien (David Tao Tai-wai), two aging comedians who ruled the airwaves only to split in the mid-'60s on less than friendly terms. In the present, Ku is appearing on a telethon that is raising money for crippled children. He learns that the organizers of the event have planned a surprise reunion with his former partner. Ku and Shen meet before the telethon, quickly rekindling their long simmering animosity. Further problems develop when Ku's long-lost love child introduces herself and Shen is diagnosed with a nasty heart disease. Just when the meeting seems all but impossible, Shen's crafty son intervenes.
