Forbidden City Cop

Forbidden City Cop (大內密探零零發; lit. "the Imperial Secret Agent 008") is a 1996 Hong Kong martial arts/comedy film directed by Vincent Kok and the film's star Stephen Chow.

Ling Ling Fat is, by heritage, a member of the Chinese Emperor's elite personal bodyguards. Instead of studying martial arts, like his fellow bodyguards, Ling Ling Fat makes unusual inventions, practices gynaecology, and spends time with his loving wife. In the beginning of the film, Ling Ling Fat fails to apprehend a group of ugly swordsmen who are trespassing in the Forbidden City, but he does manage to acquire a kung fu manual from one of the swordsmen, Flying Fairy. During an audience with the Emperor, Ling Ling Fat's seemingly useless inventions and his ignorance of martial arts enrage the Emperor, who demotes him to menial tasks around the palace.
