In the dream sequence where Chandler first meets 'dear brother Numpsie', Fuu first appears in front of Chandler wearing a red T-shirt with an Adidas logo , red tinted sunglasses, and a red and blue sun visor on his head. A short moment later it cuts to Fuu standing behind Chanlder wearing a blue T-shirt with a Fosters Larger logo, black tinted glasses, and a yellow/gold visor on his head.
However, being a dream, all of the above is plausible if seen from Chandler's POV. See more »

"The Golden Child" was Eddie Murphy's first film since his megahit "Beverly Hills Cop". And even though it's not as good as "Cop", it's a fun comic adventure. Murphy stars as a finder of lost children who's assigned a most unusual case. His assignment: to find the title character, a child with mystical powers. This movie could have been titled "Beverly Hills Cop and the Temple of Doom" since parts of this movie plays like a Spielbergian adventure, kinda like an Indiana Jones comedy. It's got comedy with laughs, and adventure with special effects. Lots of fun.
