No, I'm not referring to yo mama. I'm actually referring to a Hong Kong film that was released back in 1979. Yes, it really was called "Dirty Ho" as the central character of the film is a crazy martial arts with the unfortunate moniker. Directed by Lau Kar-Leung and produced by the famous Shaw Brothers, the film is a hoot as the story unfolds about the emperor of China trying to choose a successor among his fourteen children and the infighting that ensues. The eleventh prince, who is considered the favourite to succeed, is betrayed by the fourth prince and finds himself battling to get back to the capital with the help of the charming Dirty Ho. As is the case with many of the Shaw Brothers films, the movie is ground-breaking as one of the finest examples of an action comedy.
