For ne'er-do-well compulsive gambler Slipper (Jackie
Chan), there's only one thing more fearsome than debtors at his doorstep
- having to coax a crying baby. But what if the baby becomes his golden
goose to fend off his debtors? Can he overcome his phobia of diapers,
milk bottles, and cloying lullabies?
Brought up in an impoverished family and kicked out of school in his teens,
Slipper found himself on the wrong side of the tracks despite being nimble-footed
and neat-fingered. Spurned by his family and hounded by debtors, he is
goaded by his greedy landlord (Michael Hui) to collaborate in harebrained
heists. Together with the agile and opportunistic Octopus (Louis Koo),
the trio kidnaps BB, the grandson of a tycoon. However, due to some unexpected
glitches, they fail to hand him over to the triad as planned.
With the assistance of an angelic nurse Melody (Gao Yuanyuan), the landlord's
baby-crazy wife (Teresa Carpio) and Octopus' teenage fan Pak Yin (Charlene
Choi), the macho men discover the joys of Rob-B-Hood. When they realize
that the triad is after both the ransom and BB's life, they decide to
make their hostage their protégée. Cornered by cops and
threatened by ferocious gangsters, this trio of incorrigible merry men
embarks on a hair-raisingly dangerous and deliriously funny escapade to
put BB safely back in his cradle.
