All's Well, Ends Well Too (花田喜事) is a 1993 Hong Kong comedy film directed by Clifton Ko, and released as comedy fare as is the usual custom to entertain movie-goers on the Lunar New Year celebrations. The main setting is in the Song Dynasty and this reflects in the period costumes and architecture.
All's Well, Ends Well Too is part of a series of similarly titled films, together with All's Well, Ends Well (1992), of which it is not a sequel, All's Well, Ends Well 1997 (1997), All's Well, Ends Well 2009 (2009), and the similarly themed All's Well, Ends Well Too 2010 (2010).
This comedy follows in tune with the series of films of the same name. Chow Tung (Samuel Hui) is a licentious man who was arranged to get married along with his ugly sister Gut (Sandra Ng) to partners not of their choice. Chow, being a filial son, agrees to go along with his mother's (Ricky Hui) plans. The plot thickens when Chow meets the beautiful Snow White (Rosamund Kwan) and decides to marry her of which Matriarch Chow agrees whole-heartedly. Unknown to them, Snow White's magician lover, David Cooper Feel (Leslie Cheung) schemes a plan and Chow Tung was married instead to Jinx (Teresa Mo).
The entire film uses mistaken identity as its central theme for comic effect, this theme is repeated for All's Well, Ends Well Too 2010.
