Viewing Notes

About 30 minutes into this I remembered why I’ve always skipped this movie in Jackie Chan’s oeuvre. Unless it’s HARD BOILED, “baby in peril” flicks are not for me nor are “inept men suddenly have to take care of baby” movies. Ugh

At least the baby is super adorable. Also, slapstick action comedies with this premise should never ever be over 2 hours long. Love ya, Benny, but sometimes ya gotta pull the brake lever. Also gets a downgrade for casting Charlene Choi and then making her unwanted by Louis Koo. Probably the most unrealistic thing of the entire movie.
