It's not a cinematic masterpiece. But what Shanghai Noon lacks in artistic prowess is well made-up for with hilarious one-liners, cheesy action sequences, and instantly likable characters (played by Owen Wilson and Jackie Chan, respectively). The script, written by Alfred Gough and Miles Miller, is tied together with an absolutely ludicrous chain of events. It prizes itself as being nothing other than a comedy western, parodying the likes of The Searchers, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and (my favored choice) High Noon. Perhaps not surprisingly, Chan and Wilson's comedic talents work hand-in-hand, their lines bounce off one another with complete ease, which bodes well with the given narrative. If someone had told me I would have laughed at pee jokes and quasi-racist stereotypes, I would have looked at them and said, "That'll be the day." But alas, here I am. This is the day. And I'm not even embarrassed to have enjoyed it... well, maybe slightly.
