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

When Pat Morita guest-starred on The Tonight Show in 1989, with Jay Leno serving as guest host, they recalled that the movie had run out of money on the last day of filming, with key scenes yet to be shot and no budget left for editing and post-production. See more »
Scully goes from not having a criminal record, and his own address being a P.O. Box, to having a rather long rap sheet, and his address changed to a house address. See more »
[Costas and Natsuo have broken into a suspect's house and set off the burglar alarm]
Investigator Fujitsuka Natsuo:
Isn't someone going to hear that and call the police?
Detective Tony Costas:
No, you see in this neighborhood they don't call the police, they just yell "Turn that shit off".

Okay, I know I shouldn't like this movie but I do. From Pat Morita's loveable interpretation of a Japanese stereotype to Jay Leno's annoying yell, I laughed throughout this movie.As long as you take into account that this is not the best movie in the world, it's a good mvie.
My favorite part is Morita talking to his boss in Tokyo with the drinking a close second.
