trailer twinkle twinkle lucky stars
Twinkle, Twinkle Lucky Stars (Chinese: 夏日福星) is a 1985 Hong Kong martial arts action comedy film directed by Sammo Hung, who also starred in the film. The film co-stars Jackie Chan and Yuen Biao. The film was released in the Hong Kong on 15 August 1985.
It is the third instalment in the Lucky Stars series, following Winners and Sinners (1983) and My Lucky Stars (1985).
The film was released under several different titles in other regions, including:
The Five Lucky Stars, one of them being replaced by a younger brother, are assigned by the police to allow an actress to live with them. The actress has information on a crime syndicate and assassins are sent after her. Ricky (Yuen Biao) and Swordflower are to stay at the actress’s home undercover to capture the assassins. Throughout the course of the movie, the Stars chase the attractive woman around the house, though their efforts are largely unsuccessful. At the climax, the three assassins eventually end up at a recreation building to take down Swordflower (mistaking her to be their target), but coincidentally Kidstuff (Sammo Hung) and his friends are there and they recognize one of them, with help from the actress. Muscle (Jackie Chan) and Ricky arrive in the nick of time and a showdown takes place, eventually ending with the protagonists victorious. The police and a large ensemble of Chinese actors arrive to congratulate them.
The film sees the return of John Shum. In Winners And Sinners, Shum had played one of the Five Lucky Stars, "Curly". However, he was absent from the second film, My Lucky Stars, due to his commitments as a political activist and was ostensibly replaced by Eric Tsang. Tsang retains his role as "Roundhead" in this film, whereas Shum plays a supporting role as an actor working and living alongside Rosamund Kwan's character.
