The Ghost of the Post (Office)

This comedy revolves around Max Kling (Woody Allen), a retired gigolo, and his lover, Jimmy Wang (Jackie Chan), a clerk at the Doyer Street Post Office in Manhattan’s Chinatown. In a horrible mail sorting accident, Jimmy’s mangled corpse is postmarked for, well, who the hell knows? Max races around the country with Jimmy’s ghost trying to find the lost body. It finally turns up in the dead letter office of the Topeka Post Office just as Jimmy’s sister (Lucy Liu) arrives to return his remains to China. In the tearful climax, Max comes out of retirement to solicit her in the hope that he’ll earn enough for a bus ticket home.

Based on a true story about a smart, good looking member of the Straight Dope Message Board who loves to wear moccasins while at home. After many years of loyal use, his current pair just can't hold together any longer and are splitting out all over. At his wife's behest, this charming, roguish fellow heads to the local shoe franchise to but a new pair only to find rows filled with cheap slippers with the awful plastic soles that are just too terrible to wear. Finally, at the end of the row, our hero finds The Last of the Moccasins.

The year is 2020 and Harry Prichard has been working on a project that will finally bring an extinct mammal back to life. His team has chosen a woolly mammoth due to the DNA available in frozen corpses. The whole project goes rouge when a loose canon in the lab, Lirya Queen, decides to use the expensive technology to resurrect her grandfather's green beret friends who had been killed during the Korean War after going off course and crashing in Siberia. The resurrected green berets aren't nearly as grateful as Lirya anticipated, so it's up to Harry to battle to save the lab and the woolly mammoth project before CNBC learns about what's going wrong in the lab.

After a storm washes out the bridge into town, the intelligent detective is forced to stay the night at the manor but that night, the rich, powerful, and ill-tempered lord of the manor is gruesomely shot, poisoned, stabbed in the back, electrocuted, hung, and defenestrated. Now the detective must deduce who did it, was it his unfaithful wife, his jealous brother, his spoiled son, alcoholic daughter, the old uncle who swore revenge, the stoic butler hiding a secret, the maid who was wronged, the studly gardener also with a secret, the obstinate town constable, the seemingly simple local delivery boy, or someone else?
