Watch The Contract (1978)

The fighting actor Chih-Wen (Michael Hui) received a tough offer from his company MTV Studios, signed a binding 8-year contract and has so far only had one opportunity to perform live. He soon got a better contract with a competing company that promised a 5-year contract and better opportunities to trade and make money. Since he can't start a new business with the current 8-year contract with MTV, he and his upcoming brother (Ricky Hui) try to steal the contract from his reckless manager with the help of magician Shih-Chieha (Sam Hui)....

Great Comedy with a great cast, a good storyline and above all: the most funny dialogues ever. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. Not this one. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. The Contract also looks nice from the soundtrack side. The variety of dialogues, which is the power of this production, excites the viewer, especially against today's movies that are clearly weak and so boring. It doesn't happen often, but after watching The Contract, I was moved inside. The Contract is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.... Show more
