R - Plenty to Choose From

Welcome to day eighteen of the A to Z Challenge. If you're here for the first time or if you've forgotten already, this year's theme is movies! I am posting a quote, a character or two, and a brief synopsis of a movie for each letter. You then get to guess the movie in the comments. Answers will be revealed in the following day's post.

Answer to Q: Quigley Down Under

It's time for R in our marathon of movies. There are a ton of movies to choose from for today. I finally got it down to one. This is one of my favorite comedies. Totally unexpected when it came out, it produced two sequels and became an instant classic. Don't think this will be the hardest one of the month.

Character
Detective Inspector Lee - Kung fu master, top cop, and funnier than he has any right to be, Lee begins as the proverbial fish out of water in LA. By the end of the movie, he's still half of one of the funniest buddy pairs in recent movie history.

Synopsis
This movie combines the buddy comedy, cop movie, and kung fu into an unforgettable adventure that's more than worth multiple viewings. This is another of those movies that I have to watch every time it comes on TV. It's a can't miss. If you haven't seen it, you owe it to yourself.
