Knock Off

Synopsis: A Hong Kong fashion designer (Jean Claude Van Damme, if you can believe that billing) who had previously been involved in knock offs of major label merchandise, such as "Pumma" running shoes, attempts to go straight with the help of his new partner (Rob Schneider), who is secretly an undercover CIA agent involved in an investigation of the black market. Their main product, jeans, is involved in the knock offs, which brings a representative (Lela Rochon) of the American company to investigate. Paul Sorvino also appears as the head of the CIA operation in Hong Kong. However, just as Schneider is not as he initially seems, everyone in the film switches roles by film's end.

your hand off, or you'll Iose it.

You're in toys now, Skinny?

Aren't you too big for that?

I can be in any business I want.

No one can touch me.

Pachy! Are you okay?

Do you want some water?

You work for me?

As an elephant?

Then put your head on

and get to work. Get going!

Girls, I'm late.

Where were you? We've had

two meetings and a fashion show.

At noon, the copier blew up, and at

You son of a b*tch.

I'm one step ahead

of an angry husband.

He doesn't mean it.

I heard you were running.

I can't let you spoil my record.
