Cat vs. Rat is a Shaw Brothers martial arts-comedy film directed by Lau Kar Leung, starring Alexander Fu, Adam Cheng, Kara Hui and Hsiao Ho. The plot is loosely based on the 19th century wuxia classic novel The Seven Heroes and Five Gallants.


Alexander Fu Sheng and Adam Cheng star as rival students of the same kung fu master. The Rat (Fu Sheng) and Cat ( Cheng) have spent years arguing over who has the most powerful kung fu. When the Cat is appointed as guardian to the emperor, the Rat becomes profoundly jealous and hatches a plot to discredit his rival.


Note: The characters' names are in Cantonese romanisation.
