Watch this if you liked: "Men Suddenly In Black" and "Men Suddenly In Love"

Men will always be men as proven in this Pang Ho-Cheung-produced action comedy movie. Once again, the producer never fails to bring a few good laughs to the table. This time, we see Gary Mak make his debut as a director in a more light-hearted film, which is actually based on a true story.

The opening of the film presents the audience with a climactic scene as it dives straight into a robbery scene. The competition between the main Hong Kong police force and the Special Duties Unit is a stiff one as both teams race against time to clear the mess. However being the underdogs of the police force, they yet again miss the opportunity by losing to the much stronger team. Due to the stressful lives of the four leads, the team heads to Macau for a night of relaxation.

Who knew their journey meant for relaxation would come to a quick halt as the four men land themselves in hot soup. Unbeknownst to them, this short trip takes them on an adventure where the members learn about themselves better as a team as they discover the meaning of love, family and relationships.

Chapman To once again reunites with Pang for the film but this time around the focus is no longer solely on him as it features the escapades of the four main characters. Chapman To plays the egoistic leader of the group who gives impromptu motivational speeches that unexpectedly pushes the team to succeed. Matt Chow who is known as the "internet junkie" is also the sleaziest member of the group. As for Shawn Yue, he takes on a more serious role and is constantly at loggerheads with To. The last member of team who is also the unluckiest, Derek Tsang, is given the nickname "dried shrimp" due to his unfortunate stint on a previous case.

Overall, the movie cannot be taken too seriously as it gives a distinct Hong Kong style humour but the interactions and chemistry between the four key characters are always fun to watch.
