Jackie Chan (Wong Fei-Hung) nearly lost an eye when Jang Lee Hwang (Jim Ti-Sam) kicked him in the head during the final fight scene. When Hwang became aware of this, he refused to do more takes for the shot. See more »

Some Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin) versions have a running time of 110 minutes, whilst others are at approximately 95. With exception to a handful of home video releases, such gaps have often been filled with another language/dub, and/or removed. See more »
This is my favourite jackie chan film. It's one of the funniest films i've ever seen. It starts with a fight and ends with one,so the action crowd won't be disappointed! Plus it contains the funniest scenes chan has ever put on film,such as the taunting of his idiotic teacher and the horror of realising the woman who he picks a fight with is his auntie!Brilliant.
