(at around 1h 16 mins) When Chandler and Kee Nang are ambushed at home after bringing the dagger back to America, Kee Nang twice utilizes a series of backward handsprings (once for evasion, and once for the protection of Chandler.) The first time, a white leotard is visible beneath her blue nightshirt; the second time, a pair of white bikini briefs are seen. See more »
I would lie if I said that this movie is good, it isn't. The plot is down the drain and so unlogical that it makes my head ache, but the movie does have some qualities. The actors are OK and the footage can't be complained at either and I must add that thanks to Eddie Murphy the movie is watchable and even funny.
I don't know how he does it but his zany jokes keeps hitting the right comedy-button - every time.
So the conclusion is that, in the end I must recommend you all to see it - if not for a brilliant movie but for Murphy's jokes.
