Jackie Chan is a young roustabout who learns that alcohol is the key to kung fu glory.  The fight choreography is great, and some of the “drunken” styles are really hilarious — such as the one where he pretends to be a preening maiden, knocking down attackers with his hips.  This early kung fu comedy works well as a parody of itself.  Watchable plus!  Note: you could always just watch the 1994 sequel which is way better (though it lacks the low-budget charm of the original.)
