In this high quality transfer from a recently found pristine 35mm print, stand-up comic Johnny Yune stars as an Asian immigrant whom everyone calls "Bruce" (because he looks like action star Bruce Lee). Bruce, a cook for the Mob, is duped into making deliveries of cocaine without knowing the contents of his packages. But when a crazy assortment of characters -- ranging from sheriffs and hookers to Kung Fu krishnas -- catch on to what he's doing, he has to learn to fight.

Bruce is sent cross country delivering "Asian Flour," a covername for cocaine/heroin. Honestly, I can't remember which it was. During his trip he keeps talking about his grandfather's dream of him getting to NY to meet the "lady who will take care of him". There's a lot of fun buttkicking and martial arts. The action is slow enough that most anybody can follow along.
I have been quoting this movie since I saw it in the 80s. "Take a good look at my face, I'm an Oriental!"
unique. It's just what you think it might be: A comedy film for those
that like that stupid comedies and martial arts. It's a dork's delight.
I do not believe that the film in any way tarnishes or makes fun of
Bruce Lee - instead it is more a Bruce Lee fan film. So many of us wish
we could be the real Bruce Lee but are so much closer to being Johnny
Yune's Bruce! Note: You do not have to like Bruce Lee to enjoy this
film - you only need to love crazy comedies.
I would say this a very good comedy movie to watch on an afternoon that you have some free time and in need of a good laugh.
If you are familiar with the 80's culture, the movie is still very funny, if not, well there are still some great laughs such as the beautiful girl at the hot tub and the alley confrontation.
