Shanghai Noon

Shanghai Noon ★★½ 2000 (PG-13)

Goofy, goodnatured, western action/comedy finds Chinese imperial guard Chon Wang (Chan) in trouble for not preventing Princess Pei Pei (Liu) from running off to America (circa 1880) with her American tutor (Connery). But it all turns out to be a kidnapping scheme and Wang winds up in Nevada, helping to deliver the ransom gold. Through some unlikely events, Wang hooks up with talkative, unsuccessful outlaw Roy O'Bannon (Wilson), learns some of the west's wilder ways, and the buds set out to rescue the damsel, who's no shrinking flower herself. Chan and Wilson are both throughly ingratiating and you've got the Chan stunts to look forward to as well. 110m/C VHS, DVD . Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu, Owen Wilson, Roger Yuan, Xander Berkeley, Jason Connery, Henry O, Walton Goggins, Russ Badger, Rafael Baez, Brandon Merrill; D: Tom Dey; W: Alfred Gough, Miles Millar; C: Dan Mindel; M: Randy Edelman.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
