Collision Course is a buddy cop film starring Jay Leno and Pat Morita.
You know, I could just end the article there and I would have done my job. People would be laughing so hard that milk would come out of their noses. Even people who were lactose intolarant would be chugging milk just so it could come out of their noses. Hindu clerics who are bound by their religion NOT to drink milk from a cow would switch and become southern Baptist just so they could partake in the nose milk thing (and because Baptists churches always look like fun in the movies.)
Yes, the phrase "Collision Course is a buddy cop film starring Jay Leno and Pat Morita" is comedy.
But Collision Course itself, THAT is another story!
The plot of the film is very formulaic. Think of Rush Hour with Jay Leno playing the Chris Tucker part. Now think of Chris Tucker playing Woody Allen's part in Annie Hall. WOULDN'T THAT BE A RIOT!!!
Now picture Chris Tucker as President Woodrow Wilson's Chief of Staff.
WOODROW WILSON: Chris, what should I do to lower the tariffs on the good people of our nation?
CHRIS: Sir, pass the Underwood Act. America deserves it.
WOODROW WILSON: Now, how about a back rub.
CHRIS: Take off your shirt, I will get the linament.
Hmmm, I guess that is just disturbing.
Speaking of which: Jay Leno plays a racist cop in Collision Course.
But, he is a LOVABLE racist cop. See, Jay doesn't like the 'japs.' Does that word make you uncomfortable? If so, Collision Coruse is not for you. If it doesn't, you're a jerk.
See, Jay's cop uses words like 'japs' constantantly as he plays Tony a Detroit cop paired up with Morita's Fuji Natsuo.
Fuji has come over from Japan to look for a turbocharger prototype that is belived to be in the area. So, Tony and Fuji are partners. Along the way they face all the same problems that most buddy cops do. By the end of the movie, you guessed it, they learned how to get along and opened their hearts to each others culture.
The film was almost completely unnoticed upon release, due to a very delayed released due to financial problems. Still, it is available at many video stores and on eBay. Go check it out, and bring your milk.
