Lightweight and made out of familiar elements, but they're handled with humor and invention.

It's the kind of copycat movie that becomes original through its cast and treatment.

The fast-talking Tucker and quick-kicking Chan are a surprisingly good team that manages to deliver a fun combination of highly choreographed action and comedy.
