An incredibly rare chance to see John Woo’s least-known comedy, co-directed and co-written with two other directors and shot on a tiny budget in (reputedly) three days.

It was Golden Harvest’s attempt to cash in on a popular “adult” comedy series of the same name made by CTV; as soon as the TV station went bust, a movie was rushed into production. It was not a box-office success but, due to the low budget, turned a small profit. Locally it became known as Bye-Bye Late Homecomers. Essentially a showcase for comedian Louis Lo – teamed with two GH cuties, Yik Ka and Angel Chan – the movie is three separate stories starring Lo as a lothario. In Till We Meet Again, he takes on a bet from a friend (played by comedian/producer Karl Maka) that he can seduce any woman within 24 hours; in Heart on Her Undies, he’s a famous horse-race commentator, with several lovers, who is unwittingly involved in heroin trafficking; and in Little Man’s Big Hopes, the longest and best of the three episodes, he plays a downtrodden husband who decides to booby-trap his apartment one night to try to kill his wife. The film looks like a group effort. Individual episodes are not credited to any one director/writer, and the style of all three is identical.
