Trivia

When Madge says to Mrs. Weebles, "Lots of evil has come out of the sea - the whirl for instance," she may be referring to The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, in which a sorry wreck of a man escapes drowning in the oceanic whirl that takes his ship and fellow crewmen. In this way Madge may be wittily dismissing both Mrs. Weebles and her views on temperance as ancient, ruined, out-of-date, stuck in the past, hearkening back to a darker time (the prohibition era) and of no current public interest or value.

The "Plan Nine From Outer Space" of Chan Films
3 October 2000 | by (Pensacola, FL) – See all my reviews

This is the worst of the Chan films, watch as our heroes use the wrong car in chase, listen to the famous "Scream" that will curl your toes and watch as Birmingham Brown writes one word on a note and Tommy Chan can get an entire address out of it.

Be warn, this one is not for serious Chan lovers, but for people who like "Plan Nine From Outer Space". But you have to watch it once to appreciate how much better other lowly rated Chans films are in comparison with this movie.
