The Eagle Shooting Heroes is a 1993 Hong Kong comedy film directed by Jeffrey Lau. It is a parody of Louis Cha's novel The Legend of the Condor Heroes. It was filmed with the cast of Ashes of Time, during a lull in the filming.
Multi-strand plot is about Ou Yang Feng and his cousin, who aim to overthrow the King and take control of the kingdom. So, they chase after the imperial jade seal held by Third Princess. She, in turn, teams up with a handsome young swordsman, Huang Yaoshi, to find an all-powerful secret martial arts manual, that can defeat the malicious Feng. Shadowing them is Huang Yaoshi's jealous lover, Suqiu, herself pursued by the Beggar King, Hong Qigong, claiming to be her long-lost cousin.
Feng reluctantly teams up with the Beggar King, who is suicidal after his amorous advances are rejected by Suqiu. The Beggar King wishes to be killed by Feng, whose attempts at murder frequently result in self-mutilating accidents.
Also wandering around the plot is an effete Indian Buddhist in search of true love and nirvana; a horny gay Taoist, Zhou Botong, out to revenge the death of his adored master, and a glam court magician, called the Imperial Master.This disparate group of misfits first meet in an inn (as in 'Ashes of Time' or 'Dragon's Gate Inn') for an eventful night of farcical bedroom hopping, and in the climactic punch-up.
