The reason that the film is titled "Wheels on Meals" instead of "Meals on Wheels" is because of superstition. Golden Harvest had produced two films beginning with "M", Megaforce (1982) and a film titled Menage a Trois, both of which were major flops. So the company's executives changed the title hoping this film would avoid the same problems, which it did. See more »

i think the summary says it all. i love project a, and my lucky stars, dragons forever,and winners and sinners, but wheels on meals in the best out of all of them. one of my friends put me on a lot of Jackie Chan films right after rumble in the Bronx, and the first two movie he gave me as a birthday gift, was ProjectA and Wheels on Meals. it's a prefect fit of comedy, action, and martial arts. Thomas (Jackie)and David (Yuen Biao)are cousins and have a food business in a van, and run into a girl, who is nothing but trouble, and Sammo Hung is a detective, who is looking for the girl.The comedy is great, and the action is brilliant, and this is one of the film i would love to remake. Rent or buy this movie if you are a fan.
