For ne'er-do-well compulsive gambler Thongs (Jackie Chan), there's only one thing more fearsome than debtors at his doorstep - having to coax a crying baby. But what if the baby becomes his golden goose to fend off his debtors? Can he overcome his phobia of diapers, milk bottles and cloying lullabies?
Brought up in an impoverished family, and kicked out of school in his teens, Thongs found himself on the wrong side of the tracks despite being nimble-footed and neat-fingered. Spurned by his family and hounded by debtors, he is goaded by his greedy landlord (Michael Hui) to collaborate in harebrained heists. Together with the agile and opportunistic Octopus (Louis Koo) the trio kidnaps the baby grandson of a tycoon. However, due to some unexpected glitches, they fail to hand him over to the triad as planned.
With the assistance of an angelic nurse Melody (Gao Yuanyuan), the landlord's baby-crazy-wife (Teresa Carpio) and Octopus' teenage fan Yan (Charlene Choi), the macho men discover the joys of "Rob-B-Hood." When they realize that the triad is after both the ransom and the baby's life, they decide to make their hostage their protege. Cornered by cops and threatened by ferocious gangsters, this trio of incorrigible merryman embarks on a hair-raisingly dangerous and deliriously funny escapade to put the baby safely back in his cradle.
