Quick Takes: Treasure Inn

Treasure Inn(PG)
Action-comedy/97 minutes
3.5/5 STARS

THE MacGuffin in Hong Kong director Wong Jing's Treasure Inn is a stolen white-jade Guanyin statue, but the point is really to watch the actors making fools of themselves.

Nick Cheung and Nicholas Tse put on their silly hats. Cheung is a hoot to watch as a lowly buck-toothed constable who has an inflated view of his looks.

Tse, though, perhaps distracted by marital problems with wife Cecilia Cheung, seems rather subdued here.
