    Had the same thing happen to me in Lidl this week, managed to cope with it and not bruise the old knuckles, tho I did get a few back twinges in the pub later:p

    That happens to me and I'll split a watermelon with a punch, that way people know who they are dealing with.

    I love that he played a Japanese driver and spoke in Cantonese the whole movie.

    It seems most sushi shops have sushi chefs speaking mandarin around here these days too, btw.

    I guess that scene was filmed in Arizona in 81 - I met her in Georgia in 84 or 85 ?

    I forgot he was in that movie.

    Remember the character, the Japanese car (Mitsubishi Starion turbo?) and that scene but since Jackie Chan wasn't well known I never put it together.

    I wouldn't know the difference but I have noticed many that I didn't think were Japanese.

    I remember that movie. Man that was a while back. Don't remember who won, if you know pass it on, I don't think it will be a spoiler at this point.

    Watching Cannonball Run 2, eh??? And I thought the first was a guilty pleasure! I'm a huge Jackie Chan fan, want to share one of my favorite fights of his with u! I've seen all of his movies, this is the best... Sorry, can't find the entire sequence in quality. Enjoy!
