Some viewers incorrectly perceived that there is a Vietnamese flag inside the home of Consul Han who represents China.
There is no Vietnamese flag in the Chinese Consul's home. Two flags are correctly displayed in the Consul's home, the Hong Kong flag (white flower on red field) and the flag of the People's Republic of China (one large and four small yellow stars on a red field). PRC had just taken back Hong Kong from the British. While at some angles these flags hanging limp may look a bit like the Vietnamese flag (a single yellow star on a red field), they are distinctly Chinese and Hong Kong flags. See more »

This movie is pure comedy from the beginning to the end. You will have a good laugh thanks to Chris Tucker in his role of Carter, a clumsy LA cop. The city of Los Angeles is spectacular and is a great scenario for this entertaining movie. Jackie Chan at its best kicking asses everywhere with an outstanding humble attitude. I think Americans love Jackie Chan because he's so nice and great person.
The main reason why I like this movie is the wonderful duo they play, constantly arguing, while walking around exciting California, USA, about everything, but in the meantime they are loyal partners. The great diversity there is in America singles out in a city like Los Angeles when we go through Chinatown. And fortunately, the movie brings us out there. Interesting cultures melt into a huge variety of ethnicities that make anything possible to happen. This is why America is so interesting and wonderful and we from abroad love her as a beautiful land.
All in all, this is a worth-seeing Hollywood movie and probably you would like to watch it several times!
