The butt review

This is a very good Jackie chan film. Some sex when they are in the bathtubs and some bad language. A lot of violence and some drinking
age 10+

A classic buddy story with a very, very funny script.

Ok, including the silly Wild West brothel/saloon stuff, this movie is straight out of a bored school-boy's daydreams. But there's enough here to keep a mom laughing too, especially Owen Wilson's dead-on comic timing and Jackie Chan's weird ability to be a Kung Fu Master and a big goofball at the same time. Let's face it, there's nothing funnier than a sensitive train robber. The combination of Kung Fu action and a really nice "do the right thing" story make this a favorite.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
