User Reviews

FINALLY! A movie to take the kids two that adults will love too!
16 June 2004 | by valeyard40See all my reviews

Wonderful!

We just saw the film today and I laughed out loud! Not only did the seven year old laugh, but the fourteen year old laughed too! My husband and I laughed as well.

Chan was very funny, so was Coogan. There were also a host of cameos to keep you laughing. Where on EARTH did Schwarzenegger find that wig!

The fighting scenes were very good. Chan, as usual, delivers his usual cavalcade of exciting martial arts.

All in all, a movie that will keep you entertained AND you can take the kids to see! A miracle in 2004! Well worth the price of a ticket!
