Trivia

Jackie Chan directed some of the factory fight scene. See more »

Goofs

When Jackie is in Tung's flat he watches a selection of fish in a clear tube suspended from the ceiling. When it cuts to the next shot the fish that Jackie was just looking at are nowhere to be seen and there is no way that they could have swum far enough away from where he was looking within the tube when the cut occurred.

Alternate Versions

The international English version contains two scenes of Biao visiting the psychiatrist that were missing from the Hong Kong version, but it is, in turn, missing footage: -A waiter asks Nancy if she wants to use the male toilet. -Luke singing at two points during the scenes at the fishpond. -Some of the final courtroom scene (also re-ordered). -The trio's discreet entry into the factory. -The butterfly kick in slow motion.

Engagingly goofy - one of Jackie's funniest
2 January 2004 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

The comedy is VERY funny (casting Jackie as a lawyer is funny in itself, intentionally I hope), the romance is sweet and the action is (expectedly) spectacular. The film is marred only by its inconsistent tone: there is a little too much violence toward the end, which doesn't sit too well with the rest of the movie. By the way, I watched the dubbed version, and this may be one of those rare instances where the dubbing does not significantly detract from the film - in fact, it probably ENHANCES the comedy.
