i have seen other jackie chan movies and have been glued to the wonderful choreography of the fights and laughed at his henny youngman-type humour but this is by far the BEST jc movie. i would have to say it's one of the best all around kung fu movies, too.
there is LOTS of humour, LOTS of shtick, and of course LOTS and LOTS of kung fu... crane kung fu, snake kung fu, tiger kung fu- i didn't know there were so many types of kung fu! seeing jc go through the "disciplines" is painful to watch, and auntie is cool! she makes sailor moon look like a power puff girl. this chick kicks a** with so much grace and style - and not a hair out of place! great, fun, popcorn-popin' movie.
