THE INSPECTOR WEARS SKIRTS is a typically knockabout Hong Kong comedy with a bit of action at the beginning and end to bookend it. It was produced by Jackie Chan and stars a wealth of female talent, mixed between female action stars and comediennes. I should note that this is primarily a comedy based around the female members of a training school; there are the usual set-piece hijinks at bars and parties and at a roller disco too. The comedy is very localised and Chinese in tone, but I found much of it fitfully amusing and cameos from the likes of Ricky Hui help immensely. Stanley Fung is also on top form and has a good repartee with Sibelle Hu. The action makes good use of Cynthia Rothrock and the ending is particularly frenetic, with Kara Hui and Jeff Falcon going at it and all manner of crazed antics for viewers to enjoy.

Madame Wu (Sibelle Hu) has been assigned to the Hong Kong Police Academy to train female Banshee Squad Members, next door to the male Tiger Squad Members lead by Inspector Kan (Shui-Fan Fung). After internal conflicts and courting mishaps, the squad members were ordered to band together to round up a gang of thieves at a convention.
