    This was one of my favorite movies. Jack Burton and his Truck. One of my favorite parts is when he took that strange potion; and get’s all uppity shooting at the ceiling. A huge chunk falls on his head and knocks him out. And Kim Catrell looks very interesting in all that makeup during the parts when Lo Pan plans on getting married. The Character’s interplay and romance makes for an entertaining diversion and distraction from the fact that the Storms all seem to have massive ego problems.
