Format: DVD
When the master of a huge kung fu family is dying, he marries a gorgeous young woman so that his somewhat evil brother (played by Johnny Wang Lung Wei) won't inherit all of his possessions. Wang Lung Wei being the villain that he is looks to steal the will when his brother dies. Kara Hui plays the aunt and goes to take the will to her late husband's other brother (Lau Kar Leung). Lau gives himself a rare lead role and his son is played by his real life disciple, Hsiao Hou. Hsiao Hou has plans to make his grand aunt look like a fool.

Lau Kar Leung's comedy is on full display in this classic. Hsiao Hou and Gordon Liu play friends in the movie and there are plenty of odd situations, such as fencing at a masquerade party.

If you are not a fan of Lau's comedies, I can guarantee that you won't like this movie. But if you do like his comedy then you can expect this to be one of his very best. Almost a 5 star movie, but it could have used a couple more good fights.

If you are someone who watches these movies just for the fights, you may want to at least take a glance at this. The final fight between Wang Lung Wei and Lau Kar Leung is a short masterpiece. Wilson Tong has 2 very good fights, and there is no better choice than having the chiseled Kwang Young Moon play the iron skin master. His fights could have been better, but this movie is so star studded it can easily be forgiven. Yuen Tak gets in some good fencing action, and so does Gordon Liu, while wearing a blonde wig!

4/5

Picture quality is perfect. I didn't spot a single blemish. The mono Mandarin track sounds good. No Cantonese track unfortunately. The English dub is the way to go since it gives a better translation than the subtitles.

I noticed an error in the details; the screen format is 2:35:1, not 1:66:1, and there are quite a few extras like an awesome 22 minute interview with the "Young Auntie" herself, Kara Hui Ying-Hung and original widescreen Shaw Brothers trailers. This is NOT a bootleg, this is a re-mastered version of a great Liu Chia-liang (Lau Kar-leung) movie. I'm not going to go into the plot, but I will say that this one is a Liu comedy. If his brand of comedy appeals to you, you will definitely enjoy this. Besides, the fu (choreography by Liu & Hsiao Hou) is absolutely incredible. Many great cameos by Gordon Liu (who sings and plays guitar here), Kwon Young-Moon, Wilson Tong & Yuen Tak (one of Jackie Chan's classmates during their Opera school days). Many great set-pieces including a ballroom dance turning into an all-out brawl, European fencing versus Chinese swordplay & the numerous martial bouts towards the film's end, culminating with a fantastic bout between Johnny Wang & Liu Chia-liang (seen on the bottom of the DVD's cover). In short, a classic Liu Chia-liang comedy, a great looking DVD by Dragon Dynasty; crisp, blemish- free picture, widescreen, clear audio & re-mastered subtitles. However, stay away from the English dub & the audio commentary, quite simply, stinks on ice.

I really wanted to like this movie, but like others have said if your not a fan of slapstick comedy you are going to hate this movie. The reason I'm giving a 2 is if you hang in there until the end there is some great martial arts. Just sooooooo difficult to stomach the rest of this movie. I don't even want to call this slap stick because i can watch a 3 stooges marathon and go away smiling. I guess at the end the choice is yours. Took me 2 sessions to watch this through and both times realized i got a headache from all the yelling and frustrating acting.

Directed by Chia-Liang Liu, many consider this to be one of the four definitive martial arts movie in the Shaw Brother collection, with some of the best sword fighting and unarmed combat sequences ever captured on film.

Not that the gorgeous, skillful Kara Hui starred in so many classic martial arts pictures, but for damn sure she made an impact in her day. MY YOUNG AUNTIE - which to me is much cooler than its alternative title FANGS OF THE TIGRESS - is Kara Hui's breakout film. Much like Cheng Pei Pei before her and Michelle Yeoh after her, Kara Hui had no formal martial arts training and so relied heavily on her dance background to help her transition into martial arts cinema. Her performance in MY YOUNG AUNTIE earned her Best Actress honors in the 1982 inaugural Hong Kong Film Awards.

She plays Cheng Tai-Nan, a young woman who, at a dying old man's request, marries him so that his wealth and holdings don't end up in the clutches of his evil brother. Lau Kar-Leung (a.k.a. Liu Chia-Liang) directs and, as is his wont, he gives himself a plum role, this time that of Cheng Tai-Nan's benevolent nephew. I'm certain it won't be lost on the viewer that Lau Kar-Leung is much older than his very young auntie. An amusing early scene on the docks certainly mines this arsebackwards age discrepancy. But Lau Kar-Leung is a gracious filmmaker and he allows his two younger stars to get the brunt of screen time. And the camera loves, loves, loves Kara Hui, with her exquisite smirk and elegance and attitude and mad skills.

MY YOUNG AUNTIE tries on several hats. It's a kung fu actioner, a zany comedy, and, at one point, a musical. Humor being such a subjective animal, whether you favor MY YOUNG AUNTIE or not will ultimately depend on if you can stand the slapstick routines which dominate the film. Admittedly, for me, I think its two hours' running time may be too long, and by that I mean that it allows for too much silliness to go down. The sequence with the masquerade ball is particularly brutal.
