Never fear because it's Plain Jane to the Rescue!

Plain Jane To the Rescue  is the Big Screen adaptation of Josephine Siao's TV character Jane. She plays a free spirited tomboy who's always running from one bad job into another. Ricky Hui co-stars as her childhood sweetheart. He doesn't know how to convey his affections for her. Jane works for the CEO (Charlie Cho) of Z-Corp., a ruthless company with a worldwide domination aspirations. Her job is to teach the Owner some manners because he feels that his father is an embarrassment to him and the company. She also uncovers his plans of trying to take over Hong Kong. When his plans endanger the life of her client, Jane and Ricky team up together to stop this mad Industrialist.

Fun movie, Josephine Siao is a great comedian. Like I said earlier, this is not your typical John Woo film due to the presence of a strong female character. Woo's only film to date to feature such a role.


John Woo makes a cameo appearance as John Woo "unemployed Director". The film features a funny reference to Princess Chang Peng (cantonese opera in an employment office).
