King of Comedy (1999)

A Chinese romantic comedy directed by Stephen Chow and Lee Lik-chi, starring Karen Mok and Ng Man-tat.
A struggling actor tries to get roles in films. He befriends a prostitute and some gangsters.
This was not so great. The plot went nowhere and the characters were trivial. There was some good humor involved. The video and audio were clear and everything made sense. I just don't think that this is Chow's best work. The best scene and video shot is in the picture. It is framed and composed very well, with actors playing definitive roles. Too bad the whole movie wasn't like this. Overall, pretty shitty. I rate this poor. You probably should not watch it.
