Trivia

When Del introduces Jimmy for his James Brown performance, she refers to him as "The Emperor of Soul. " This is somewhat of an ironic quip, as Emperor Penguins are the inspiration to the nickname for Tuxedos, "Penguin Suit." See more »

May not be for you... but well worth a try.
26 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

What do you look for in movies? A deep twisting plot? A story that stays with you long after and still stirs up emotions? Well you won't find it here! But... why does that have to be a bad thing? If you want a film like I mentioned, there are many out there. But, if you want to sit back and enjoy some light entertainment that will still make you laugh, no-one does it better than Jackie Chan. Sure, the plot is light, but what did you expect? I have seen this film twice now and would watch it again anytime. I have seen reviews saying this film was terrible purely because of JLH's role... I say make up your own mind, I'm not promising you will like this movie but at least give it a chance... When you have made as many movies as JLH and Jackie Chan, not every film you have starred in will appeal to every critic, but this may be just the right kind of film for you. One other point- Many of the reviews I have read say something like "This film is terrible, I'd rather watch Sin City, or We Were Soldiers," and while I like these movies myself, you need to remember that there are parents with young children who may struggle to find a film they are happy to show their children, and this movie may be more suitable for younger viewers, while still amusing parents. If you have read this, I want you to know that this is only my opinion, so I'll say again "Try it for yourself."
