Some of the funniest lines ever in a film. Full stop.
16 September 2003 | by (Edinburgh) – See all my reviews

This film has some of the most priceless quotations I have ever heard. The other review gives a rounded appraisal of this film's charms, bar quoting some of the fine examples of the English language that this film boasts.

Par example:

(Start of film - that is *prologue* and shows scenes from "Day of the Panther" in attempt to pad out running time by showing best bits from the prequel)

(Good guy has bad guy lying there, begging for his life)

Bad Guy: I have money!

Good Guy: So have I.

(Another great one - Jason Blade, The film's protagonist and all round good egg, is on a bloodthirsty rampage around a brothel striking a blow for moral decency and bad fashion)

(Jason Blade kicks down a door. Inside the room is a naked woman and a guy in a chicken suit)

Jason Blade: You're ssssssick!

This film is incredible. There is this one scene where Jason Blade and his girlfriend Gemma (She should be called Jade - "Jade Blade") are dancing with each other. Jason is the world's worst dancer, and this display is just so cringeworthy that you actually can't watch.

Jason Blade - working class hero, secret policeman and kung-fu instructor.
