The cheap trick of changing the title of a film to attract crowds is pretty annoying,
but the good thing is that the crowds are no longer falling for it. This movie's
original title is 'Wheels on Meals', but the management at the theater has changed
it to 'Spanish Connection' for obvious reasons. Yet, the wisened moviegoers are
avoiding it. But we do not wish to take anything away from the movie, it is a
classic Jackie Chan film. Great stunts, loads of martial arts and rib tickling
humor, this one is a great entertainer.
David (Yeun Biao) and Thomas (Jackie Chan) are roommates, business partners and
good buddies who run a mobile fast food center in Spain. Into their lives steps
the beautiful Sophia, a petty criminal who picks pockets. After a few rather comical
scenes involving the three, they become good friends and Sophia turns waitress
at the fast food. But, there is a problem - Sophia is being chased by a group
of strangers and a private detective Hung (Samo Hung).
Who is Sophia and what do these people want from her? All is revealed after some
innovative and exciting fight sequences and a little investigation by Hung, who
also happens to know David and Thomas. Sophia is none other than the princess
of Spain, whose mother was disowned by the royal family 'coz she wanted to pursue
a career in movies. The guys chasing her are a plotting relative's henchmen, and
a faithful servant of the royal family hires Hung to trace the princess. After
the final confrontation with the goons, Sophia is taken in by the royal family
and our friends are dejected at having lost a good friend. But Sophia gives it
all up to be with her friends.
A typical Jackie Chan movie that most would enjoy. If you missed it when it first
released. The audio is appalling at this theater, but the acrobatic stunts and
physical humor are worth the annoyance.
