LikeTelevision proudly presents - Wheels on Meals, a terrific early film from Jackie Chan and Samo Hung Kam-Bo. The film originally released as Kwai Tsan Ttseh was made in 1984 and stars Jackie Chan and Biao Yuen as street vendors who come to the rescue of a beautiful woman named Sylvia, played by Lola Fomer. As with most Jackie Chan movies, there's lots of great martial arts, comedy and bascially good clean fun.

(1984) - Color - 100 min
Samo Hung plays a bumbling private detective named Moby - who is put on a new case after his boss runs out trying to evade some thugs looking to collect a gambling debt. He must find a woman named Gloria (Susana Sentís), who happens to be Sylvia's mother. The film features an incredible fight scene in the climax between Jackie Chan and one of the Count's strongmen (Benny Urquidez). The film is in either Cantonese or Mandarin (not sure) with English subtitles and set in the streets of Spain. Highly recommended!
Intro, Color, title screens, credits, etc. The film begins with Thomas (Jackie Chan) and David (Biao Yuen) doing their normal martial arts workout before heading to work as street vendors. A cool skateboarding scene and a funny run in with some wild motorcycle punks looking to make trouble. We also meet Moby (Sammo Hung) who is made chairman of the financially strapped detective agency when is boss is forced to flee from mobsters looking to collect a gambling debt. Sammo has a few glasses of wine to celebrate with his friends at the pub.

Sylvia takes the boys money - even though they did their best to hide it. Still, she is so beautiful and alluring, David and Thomas don't seem to mind. Lots of humorous dialogue and comedy spice up the entire film, as is the case with most Jackie Chan movies.
Sylvia takes a shower
Finally - it looks like Sylvia is going to trust the good guy street vendors Thomas and David when they offer her a chance to go straight and join them as a street vendor in their funky Mitsubishi conversion van. So - why does every scene with cars have the feel of a Mitsubishi Tv commercial? Could there have been a product placement deal?
