Plot: The film features a trickster trio notoriously known as the “Thieving Muskateers”, consisting of Slipper (Jackie Chan), Landlord (Michael Hui) and Octopus (Louis Koo). A dreamteam with a greyhound’s nose for money or costly treasure, they’re like a bullet out of a gun whenever an opportunity for a heist comes. However, rape and pillage is out of the question, as their principle is never to intentionally hurt anyone. Inspector Steve Mok (Yuen Biao) has been on their trail for a long time, but knowing that they’re not vicious felons, he doesn’t want to draw blood.

Man Yee, sole heiress to the distinguished Ding Family’s fortunes, has given birth to a boy – Matthew. However, he is snatched away by Man Yee’s ex-boyfriend Max (Terence Yin), who in a state of jealous delusion, thinks Matthew is his own flesh-and-blood. An unfortunate accident leads to Max’s untimely death. Max’s father, a mafia boss is out to take revenge, but more importantly, to regain custody of his ‘grandson’.

A reward of 30 million for the kidnapping of a tiny tod sounds like an offer that the thieving trio cannot refuse. Slipper enlists the help of nurse Melody to babysit Matthew, and falls in love with her. Landlord’s childless wife embraces the baby as her own and refuses to let it go. Octupus’ devoted girlfriend Bak Yin (Charlene Choi) discovers she is pregnant. And adorable Matthew has made his way into everyone’s heart, so they have to choose between the ransom and their conscience.
