All For The Winner (1990) was a parody of the God of Gamblers. Stephen Chow stars "The Saint of Gamblers", a mainland country bumpkin who comes to Hong Kong to visit his uncle Blackie Tat (Ng Man Tat). When Blackie learns about Stephen's special gift, he tries to turn him into a money making machine. Chow's favorite comic foil Sandra Ng co-stars as Blackie's roommate, co-director Corey Yuen also has a role as Sandra's husband. Paul Chiang plays the Gambling King and the other co-director Jeff Lau co-stars as his rival.
The movie was a huge success and it cemented Stephen Chow's place as one of the biggest stars in Hong Kong. Wong Jing was so impressed with this parody, he produced two off shoot sequels starring Stephen Chow. This dynamic duo made a huge amount of money and several funny productions as well. "Sharla" Cheung Man (co-star of God of Gamblers) plays Yee Mong (Beautiful Dream) a woman that Chow pines for but doesn't believe he's good enough for (he follows her through a few more sequels).
A sleeper hit throughout Asia. The film has several excellent action set pieces (courtesy of Corey Yuen) and the comic timing of Stephen Chow and Ng Man Tat is unbelievable.
