Toward the end of the movie we see a news van with "channel 8" and call letters on them that start with "W." Television stations in Los Angeles and any city west of the Mississippi River have call letters that start with "K" and not "W." See more »
You don't know nothing about no War.
Everybody knows War.
War! Huh! Yeah! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing, sing it again, you all!
It ain't 'you all', it's "y'all"!
Man you sound like a Karate movie, y'all!

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!
