The Wild West meets the Far East in a battle for honour, royalty and a trunk full of gold when acrobatic Chinese Imperial Guard Chon Wang (Jackie Chan) comes to America to rescue beautiful Princess Pei Pei (Lucy Liu) who has been kidnapped from The Forbidden City.
With the help of a partner he doesn't trust (Owen Wilson), a wife he didn't expect, a horse with a personality all its own and martial arts moves no one can believe, Chon finds himself facing the meanest gunslingers in the West, in this comedy/action/adventure.
Trivia: This is Tom Dey's first ever time directing. He went on to helm Failure to Launch starring Sarah Jessica Parker.
