惡人谷 (House of Wolves) is a typical Hong Kong comedy.  Superficially all the protagonists are bad guys.  Two men in a village fall in love with a woman who has just come to the village, is secretly pregnant and makes them believe both may possibly be the father of child.  Unlike some other Hong Kong comedies, this movie does not rely on cleavages or poop jokes.  As usual the plot is merely an excuse for some jokes, so it’s purely the jokes that determine whether it is successful.  Other than the final act which tries to tell a story that is not really worth telling, I think that it is above average for this class of movies.
