In his autobiography "I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action", there was one scene in the production in which Robert Clouse was not interested in Chan's idea, which was to flip out of the car, and Crouse had wanted him to just walk from the car to his father's restaurant. Chan quoted, "No one will pay money to see Jackie Chan walk!" The reason he believes this movie failed was because he wasn't given a chance to direct the action scenes the way he wanted them.

For its original UK theatrical release the film was cut by the BBFC for a 'AA' certificate to remove groin kicks, a neck break and a double ear clap. The video and all later releases including the DVD (retitled "Battle Creek Brawl") have replicated the cut to the ear clap. See more »
Well, I finally got to see it...mmmm I thought, not too bad..seeing as he didnt know much english at the time, and was well restricted by the American Film industry machine!. His Fight scenes were watered down and slow by all normal 'Jackie' standards but that apart,there are some great comic moments and Jackie wins through. He Radiates innocent charm and even manages to Rollerscate with gusto, although Im not too sure about the historical acuracy of some of the costumes..this was supposed to have been 1930s USA and Im sure spandex wasnt invented then!One interresting note for real 'died in the wool' Jackie fans , is the continued theme of the Lazy but tallented boy being trained in wierd and some would say inhumane ways by a 'sifu','master','uncle!'...amazing how this sort of idea managed to cross the pacific with him!.All in all a pleasent movie, although I can understand why Jackie was both Disappointed and Angry at the outcome at least it spurred him on to make greater and greater movies in HK.
