It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World (1987)

All you have to know about this provincial family comedy is that the zaftig comedienne Lydia Shum Tin-Ha plays one scene in a Wonder Woman costume. If you just laughed to yourself, you might want to check this movie out. Director Clifton Ko directs Ms. Shum and Bill Tung Biu in his screenplay about good people who do crazy things when large sums of money are won and lost. This film started a franchise that yielded a number of sequels. Look for Eric Tsang Chi-Wai with another crazy hairstyle.
