The distance between two people in the world is the farthest not when they are face-to-face without realizing their love for each other. It is when they are deeply in love but are waiting for the other person to end the relationship first.

Probably my favorite of all Charlie Chan films. Only one flaw in the film, the profanity.
I loved this film the first time I saw it. I am a big fan of Richard Hatch and Roddy Mcdowall. The rest of the cast is also great in their role. I enjoyed the music throughout the film. It was classical music at it's best. There is nothing more important to make a film flow than music. I also enjoyed the acting by all parties. Richard Hatch was perfect as the bumbling son and Michelle Pfeiffer was perfect as his bumbling girlfriend. I also think Peter Ustinov was perfect to play Chan. I also love Brian Keith, but the profanity he used was the only thing that I did not like. There was no need for it. I think the spoofing of the old films worked here and was not meant to degrade the old films, but pay tribute to them. There are so many funny bits in the film that I cannot understand how anyone could not be entertained by it. The final scene as they take away the murder is great. They add a final joke before the screen goes dark. I laugh every time I see it. I won't ruin it by giving it away. The joke is on the back of the police car after the car with Richard Hatch and Michelle Pfeiffer leaves. Their car sets up the joke for the second car.
