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

Jimmy Kimmel Live played a clip from the film when Kimmel joked about Southern California has caused a crime wave over the Tonight Show controversy: Leno's character gets shot by a thug with Conan O'Brien's face mapped onto it then Morita's character defeats the thug. 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".

When I saw the cover of this movie on the $2 rack at Blockbuster video, I absolutely cacked myself laughing and had to buy it. After about two years of keeping it under a table leg to stop the wobble, I finally watched it. Now, it wasn't the best movie I've seen but it sure kept me entertained. Stereotypical, yes.. Lame, absolutely.. but it was so damn funny. The 80's style car chase, the way Jay Leno seemed to forget that he'd been shot in the leg, the cheesey ending... brilliant! It was fun, it was action packed and it brought a tear to my eye.My favourite part would have to have been Tony and the guy from Karate Kid sitting in the kitchen getting sloshed. If you come across this gem in the video store or if it's coming on tele, don't pass up the opportunity to watch it. As long as your expectations aren't too high, you'll love Collision Course.
