Romeo Must Die

Synopsis: In this modern day Romeo and Juliet, kung fu action star Jet Li plays Romeo to hip-hop singer, Aaliyah Haughton's Juliet. Li is an ex-cop investigating the murder of his brother, who had ties with the Chinese mafia in America. Aaliyah plays the daughter of the American mob boss. Neither side approves of their romance, so, obviously, kung fu action ensues, with a soundtrack by Aaliyah.

Your father could be

catching some static...

...and Mac wants me

to watch your back.

Let me tell you something.

Whatever my father and Mac are into

has nothing to do with me.

You can hate them all you want.

That's your business.

If they tell me not to let you out of my sight,

I don't care if you going to confession...'s going to be you,

I gotta bring something

for the kids.

- Can l get my leg in the car? Damn!

That's right, Perry.

Several groups of investors will be

presenting proposals this week.

I thought we were done with football

when the Raiders left town.

- Yeah, well, jobs.

- What?

Jobs. See, if they have to build

another stadium...

...some of us that have been less

fortunate can attain jobs.

Harold, your unfortunate ass been

You couldn't attain a job if one
