Starring Johnny Yune, John Louie, Bill Capizzi
This unabashedly goofball martial-arts spoof gave an Asian American comedian a rare chance in the spotlight. Stand-up comic Johnny Yune stars as a Korean immigrant living in California whom everyone calls Bruce, after Bruce Lee. When the gangsters he works for recruit him to transport (unbeknownst to him) a cargo of cocaine across the country, the hapless Bruce is launched on an epic misadventure in which he’ll have to channel his legendary namesake in order to survive.
