The Tuxedoed Guy's real name is "Yu Jin Xiang" (Tulip), and his entrance theme is also that of "Chor Lauheung" (1979) ("Chu Liu Xiang" in Mandarin), a martial arts soap that Adam Cheng was starring in at the time. Given he played a suave swordsman with an eye for women in the latter, he was associated with these Bond-like characters for a while. His role as "Tuxedo Man" is a riff on that. See more »
Early, when Capt. Don Wen is offering Billy the job, he says "Old Sun's in... There's money in it." Billy's response is "If Old Sun and Lightnin' are in, there must be money in it. Count me in, too." Capt. Wen never mentions Greased Lightning previously, meaning Billy is replying with information he couldn't possibly know. See more »
This movie is one of the funnist Jackie Chan films of all time. I thought I had bought the funnist one with Young Master, but I was wrong. When the opening musical seqence opens with an ugly oriental guy in a top hat singing like a woman, I fell out of my chair. Great continutity errors: Abe Lincon as a WW2 general, the ever changing roman armour on one of the commandos, Nazi cars from the 60's (one ever having the star of david on it), and the ever popular nazi japs. Even though Jackie Chan is in the movie for a total of 10-15 minutes, his role, (jump in the scene, beat the hell out of everyone, leave), is great.
