Plot

Rascal Dirty Tiger (Lau) is enlisted to find dimwitted Crazy Frog (Hung), the wayward husband of an old matron. Tiger captures his quarry with little difficulty but Frog makes him an offer: his freedom in exchange for the "Invincible Armour," an iron mesh vest that makes the wearer invulnerable to blades and fists. Trouble is, the armour has already been stolen by sneaky pickpocket Multi-hand Chick (Meg Lam Kin-ming), so Tiger and Frog form an exceedingly uneasy alliance to get it back.
Along the way, they decide to fleece Rumour Town boss Coffin King with some fake armour, collecting a bundle in the process. This leads to an ongoing series of double crosses (which also involve some gold bars Tiger managed to fleece from Frog's wife), interrupted only by the threat posed to both partners by The Bandit Brothers, Panther (Dean Shek Tien) and Smiling Tiger (Jason Pai Piao), and their much fiercer (and smarter) father, The White-brow Monk (Lee Hoi-sang). When the latter is able to get the armour, the trio quickly prey upon the townspeople, prompting Tiger and Frog to show a little civic responsibility by putting them out of commission.
