A poor sequel to a film that wasn't very good to begin with. It's a bit of a surprise to be honest, considering the director, the cast and the plot, this could've been a really fun Jing Wong comedy, instead, we're left with a perfunctory film that belongs to the worst Wong ever directed.

The story shows promise. Pat becomes the director of Channel 9, a mediocre TV station. He puts his heart and soul into the job and introduces some new ideas that turn things around. The competitors of Channel 8 are jealous and will do anything in their power to stop Pat's success.

There are some interesting ideas here, but the execution is just dead poor. Wong underused his cast, the comedy is extremely bland, and the film looks like a throwaway sequel. It's just way too obvious this was nothing more than a quick cash-in after the success of the first film, but if you're a completist like me, there's no way around this one.
