YMMV / Shanghai Noon

  • Dueling Movies: Occasionally with Rush Hour.
    • Sammo Hung once heard Jackie Chan discuss the 'film he'd want to make someday' (A western/kung fu movie), and (thinking it was just Jackie's daydream, and not an actual plan) went ahead and made Once Upon A Time In China, And America. They make an interesting contrast.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Roy O'Bannon is Immune to Bullets because he is really Wyatt Earp.
  • Ho Yay: Chon and Roy have so much chemistry together through both films.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Charlie Chaplin from the sequel will grow up into Quicksilver.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Little Feather, the Indian that Chon saves from the Crow and sibling of Falling Leaves is a boy, but he is easily mistaken for a girl (even on the main page for a bit) due to his long-hair and gender neutral appearance and voice. The only way you'd know he was a boy is to read the credits and see that he was played by a male actor (Not too many girls named "Simon" I assume).
  • What the Hell, Costuming Department?: Lampshaded in the DVD commentary for Noon, as director Tom Dey describes Owen Wilson's outfit after the climactic church showdown as looking "like Shaggy on Scooby-Doo."
