Classic gag comedy about an irrepressible young Asian man who wants nothing more than to become a martial arts supremo like his hero Bruce Lee.

When he falls into the employ of the Mob, he's going to have to rely on his wits and skill to survive, so it's a good thing he has luck and his driver Freddy on his side.

There's not a lot to mention about the plot as Bruce and Freddy drive across the country to deliver contraband, but there was a period on my life not long after it came out where I could – and did – watch it endlessly. I probably could even still.

Right up there with Smokey and the Bandit and other movie just made for late Friday nights.
