House Of Luk

114 minutes, 1999

Marshall, Chuck and Ho Fook are three regulars at the local Chinese restaurant, the House of Luk. Marshall is a down-and-out salesman who always finds himself selling the wrong product and who’s now trying to marry off his ex-wife because he can’t pay the alimony. Chuck is a building contractor who is frustrated on one side by his emotionally distant mother and on the other by his uncommunicative son. Ho Fook is a firm believer in Feng Shui -- the art of achieving spiritual harmony through furniture placement -- but try as he might, he can’t seem to apply it to his own life. Watching over the trio of lovable losers is Kwang Luk, the restaurant’s Buddha-like proprietor who gives them each a fortune cookie with a cryptic message. Only by deciphering the message can they find the spiritual guidance that they so desperately need in their lives, which until now have been largely ruled by tragicomedy and misadventure.
