Upon the movie's North American release, Canada-based kick-boxing entrepreneurs Martin McNamara and Michael McNamara sued Miramax Film Corp., Alliance Atlantis Communications, and Front Row Entertainment Inc. for their continental promotion of the film. Claiming copyright and trademark infringement, the McNamaras - who hold the copyright on the term "Twin Dragons" as the name of their martial arts academy - asserted that the movie "tarnished" their image as fighting promoters and asked for a total of $37 million in damages.

Well the movie itself was good. But! There are only 5 action scenes! The first action scene is a classic so is the car factory fight scene at the end! Also there is bus chase on the streets of Hong Kong. Brief fight scene in a mall. And A boat chase on the sea. And otherwise the movie is funny as hell. But the two great directors didn't make this the best movie there is. This a comedy filled with action. I liked it. BUT ONLY ONE JACKIE CAN FIGHT. So go rent this funny movie with some nice chases, stunts, and fights.
