* The well-known Creator/JackieChan movie ''Film/DrunkenMaster'' has him playing a Drunken Boxing expert. He also plays a Drunken Boxing expert in his American film, ''Film/TheForbiddenKingdom''. ''ShanghaiNoon'' was supposedly going to feature a Drunken Master fighting sequence too but Hollywood knows they're not good enough for cool fight scenes... Jackie does get drunk at one point, however, if that's good enough.
