Chan, Tony Leung, Shu Qi, Yam Yin Chai
A romantic comedy that introduces
Jackie Chan in his first romantic lead. Ah Bu (Shu Qi), a girl from a
small fishing town in Taiwan, one day finds a glass bottle with a
message inside. The note reads, "Do you know I'm waiting for you?
Albert," with an address in Hong Kong attached. Bu, convinced this is
her destiny, travels to Hong Kong to meet the mysterious Albert (Tony
Leung Chiu Wai), only to find he's a gay cosmetologist who intended the
note for his ex-boyfriend.
But all is not lost as Ah Bu soon
meets dashing multi-millionaire C.N. Chan (Jackie Chan) when she helps
him ward off a gang of toughs hired by L.W. Lo (Emil Chow). Lo became
Chan's enemy in their schooldays and is still out to make his life
miserable. Chan, single and a bit lonely, quickly finds himself
attracted to Bu. Bu discovers she likes Chan as well and that's when
things become sticky for the couple. Bu's boyfriend from Taiwan comes
looking for her and Lo sends Alen (Bradley James Allan), an American
martial arts champion, out to kidnap Chan's new love.
