-->''"[[Creator/JohnWayne Chon Wang]]? [[ItWillNeverCatchOn That's a terrible name for a cowboy]]!"''

''Shanghai Noon'' is a comedy {{Western}} film starring Creator/JackieChan and Owen Wilson. Chan plays a Chinese guardsman, Chon Wang, who travels to America to rescue the kidnapped Imperial princess Pei Pei (Creator/LucyLiu), teaming up along the way with disreputable gunslinger Roy O'Bannon (played by Owen), a small time robber with delusions of grandeur. Together, the two forge through one misadventure after another. Directed by Tom Dey, it was written by [[Series/{{Smallville}} Alfred Gough and Miles Millar]]. The movie, set in Nevada and other parts of the west in the 19th century, is a juxtaposition of a western with a Creator/JackieChan kung fu action movie with extended martial arts sequences. It also has elements of comedy and the "Buddy Cop" film genre, as it involves two men of different personalities and ethnicities (a Chinese imperial guard and a Western outlaw) [[TheyFightCrime who team up to stop a crime]].
