The Inspector Wears Skirts (1988)

A top squad of female commandos are ruthlessly trained by superior policewoman Sibelle Hu in true HK slapstick style. Awful comedy routines act as the main driving force for what is essentially a HK version of Police Academy, only – if you can believe this – even worse. Cynthia Rothrock makes it into about a quarter of the film, playing Hu’s best police chum sent from Europe to assist in the training program, forced to strut her stuff in a tacked-on terrorism finale against Jeff Falcon for the want of something better to do. The minimal action sequences are all too brief to really get your teeth into, despite the best efforts of Jackie Chan’s stunt team. And plus, once you have got past the shameful musical number at the roller disco you will feel aptly obliged to spare this film of any kind of sympathy. Not all Hong Kong films are good.
