Drunken Master II (The Legend of Drunken Master) (1994)
 
Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
 

This is considered one of the best Kung Fu movies ever made. It's as much a comedy as it is a martial arts movie, and most of the fight scenes are so artistically choreographed that I felt like I was watching a great dance movie as well. Jackie Chan is just astounding as a fighter and as an acrobat. He does his own stunts which include spitting fire, crawling over hot coals, falling down stairs and off a ledge, and fighting with feet, fists, elbows, chairs, tables, bamboo staffs and more all the while making us laugh. He has an amazing way of getting on a train - he just jumps up straight through a window. He never climbs down a ladder, he slides down. In one of the funniest bits, he is fighting dozens of men with hatchets with another man, dressed in his usual baggy clothing. His partner tells him to rip his shirt off then he spits oil all over Chan and suddenly he's barechested and greased up so we can finally see him as a typical action hero. Much of the movie consists of fight scenes where Chan practices drunken boxing, which works best if the boxer is a little bit drunk. First Chan gets very drunk, drinking two bottles at a time inbetween punches, but later he figures out just the right amount of alcohol he needs to fight at his best.

Snakes show up twice in the movie. First we see a fish monger flirting with a young girl named Fun who sells snakes in an outdoor market. Jackie Chan walks up behind Fun, who is holding a snake, and tells her he needs to buy some things from her. She turns around quickly and accidentally swings a snake over his head. He ducks and dodges it then she drops it. He tells her it's getting away and she stops it with her foot. Then she flirts with him.

In the second snake scene, Jackie Chan and some martial arts students and exploited factory workers march on a steel mill to stop a bunch of corrupt men led by foreigners from smuggling stolen Chinese cultural artifacts out of the country to sell abroad. The protesters are met by foreign soldiers who aim rifles at them. Fun throws bags full of snakes onto the raised rifles which terrifies the riflemen. They drop their rifles, and the protesters pick them up.
