Isn't someone going to hear that and call the police?

Really a funny movie that no one knew/knows about. I remember I first saw it on HBO when it was already 2-3 years old, about 92-93. Still, very funny. If you watch it you'll know. Now that I think about it, it's the first Rush Hour; white(instead of black) cop and a Chinese partner who can't speak English, but really can, have hardships through the movie, which makes it interesting and funny, then bond and become friends in the end. Cool, funny movie. 8/10
I'm repeating this, because I am starting out a new commenting title. So I think just repeating this will be better and have an overall justifiable expense. Thank you. And word to your mother.
If you thought that was funny, please say so. I just did it on a whim and it cracked me a smile.
