Storyline

Tony Costas, a brash, obnoxious, sexist and racist Detroit cop who has long since stopped following the rules, gets told that he will have to work with Inspector Fuji, a straightlaced policeman from Japan. Fuji is in Detroit searching for a Japanese engineer who has gone to America with plans for a top secret car part. The pair naturally fail to get along at first, but as the investigation continues, they almost begin to come close to tolerating each other's presence. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Love it!
7 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

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.
