Although Louis Koo co-starred with Jackie Chan, several action scenes involving his character were shot with a stunt double. In addition, Koo was the baby's favorite on-set. Whenever the baby cried, Koo was always the first to cheer him up. See more »
It was shown in the bloopers during the end credits that when Jackie Chan hides the baby from the crazy landlady by tucking him under his shirt, honey was applied on his nipple to make the baby suck it. The honey can be seen on the baby's cheek during the third shot of baby inside Jackie Chan's shirt. See more »
I first wanted to say its not nearly as bad as some of the other idiots who reviewed this film said it was. This movie does have some scenes that miss the mark and weren't really needed, but all in all I was satisfied. After watching New Police Story I needed to see Jackie in a film that's more fun, and Rob-B-Hood certainly delivers! Even though this movie's main element isn'the fighting there are some really nice fight sequences, the best of which is towards the end (as always!). The entire finale takes place in an amusement park over rides, ATVs, and speeding roller coasters! I felt that some of the danger the baby was put in was unnecessary but definitely gave Jackie chances to use death defying stunts. If you can get over the fact that the obviously fake baby is visible from time to time you will enjoy this. TWO THUMBS UP!
I also thought I should add that this film ended up outgrossing X-Men: the Last Stand AND Mission Impossible III at the 2006 Chinese box office!
