beautiful canada!
4 June 2003 | by (detroit) – See all my reviews

ah, love... or lack of it. Sammo Hung plays a retired boxer/gambler just trying to make a living. a huge debt causes him to seek some fast money, so he decides to help a friend immigrate his lover.

some super funny medical research testing, a good chase in a mall, plus a great underground thai boxing match. even a mud wrestling match featuring the lovely co-star! 8/10
