Paper Marriage

1988 / 94min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: ALFRED CHEUNG

CAST: MAGGIE CHEUNG, SAMMO HUNG

In order to join her real fiancée in the US, Jade agrees to a “paper marriage” with a rotund, debt-ridden ne’er-do-well ex-fighter (played by a prime Sammo Hung), but this temporary solution only breeds more problems. Before long, he’s back in the ring, and the elegant Ms. Cheung finds herself in a mud wrestling match. Combining boxing, martial arts and gonzo physical comedy, Paper Marriage is a rarely-seen rollicking, anything-for-a-laff romantic comedy shot in scenic Edmonton, Alberta, with Cheung mugging and tumbling with the best of ‘em.
