Two of Hong Kong's most popular talent and pop stars - Sammi Cheng and Eason Chan. For Eason Chan, he is still in the main forefront of cinema and music while Sammi Cheng had been on hiatus and taking a break from the entertainment industry.

"Lady Cop & Papa Crook" is Sammi's return to cinema since her 2005 film "Everlasting Regret" and brings back the romantic comedy side of Cheng and the serious side of Eason Chan films. Fortunately, the film has two talented directors and writers involved with Alan Mak (writer of the "Infernal Affairs" films, director for "A War Named Desire", "Final Romance", "Rave Fever") and Felix Chong (writer for "Infernal Affairs" films, "Tokyo Raiders", "Initial D").

The writing duo wanted to create a film that would feature the cops and gangsters having to work together to solve a case and being stuck in one place.

"Lady Cop & Papa Crook" revolves around a illegal diesel kingpin named John Fok (played by Eason Chan). One day as Hong Kong and mainland Chinese were trying to arrest one of his men, the police chase ends tragically as an innocent mother and her son were killed in an accident. Despite being an underground kingpin, John cares for his family including his pregnant wife and his young six-year-old named Jimmy.

Meanwhile, Senior Inspector Maureen Szeto (played by Sammi Cheng) is known for solving cases and busting criminals. Her personal life is not as great as she has been dating a sculptor for a decade and their relationship has not really progressed. In fact, she hasn't had sex for a long time and she has been waiting for marriage and literally losing her patience.

Both John Fok and Maureen Szeto's path would cross when Fok's son is kidnapped.

Although there were a couple of scenes that are rather brutal (although done with humorous dialog), the movie as a whole is rather funny. It has that comedy humor one finds in an asian, specifically korean movie. The lead female character has a talent for facial expressions that enhanced the comedy. The male lead never really changed from being a gangster, which made the scenes all the more humorous. Not a lot of wall to wall action, but enough to keep the movie from stagnating. Lots of different characters, and although i am asian, i had trouble telling people apart ... could have a little more character flushing, as a couple of the characters, even at the end of the movie, i could not even remember who they were and what part they fit in the movie. However, because of the amount and variety of characters, the plot was not cut and dried. Yes, i did guess the ending, but that was only because i had guessed about six different endings, and that was only for the main bad guy, missed on others involved. Although some romance involved, definitely not a romantic comedy. If you liked Korean comedies like: My Girlfriend is an Agent, Marrying the Mafia 2 & 3, this one is for you.

I have come to expect Hong Kong films to be saturated with action, bullets, and general mayhem. If you're looking for that, this isn't the film for you. A gang leader has his son kidnapped, and proceeds to his normal modus operandi of sending his men looking for the kid. But then in come the police, led by a slightly flaky female detective, and our gangster is reduced to sitting around worrying about things, but unable to do anything about them. There are a (very) few fights and we spend most of our time locked up in the gangster's mansion watching a police procedural. It's not an awful film, but it's not very entertaining, either.
