A stoner - who is in fact a government agent - is marked as a liability and targeted for extermination. But he's too well-trained and too high for them to handle.

Where do you want to begin?
Mike Howell: Dustpan. Spoon. Noodles. Bear. Frying pan. Fire. Apollo Ape. "Marry Me."Where did it all begin?

At the very end of the movie Mike is talking to a Chinese man. Mike laughs and replies. The subtitles say "Sorry, I never knew I could speak Chinese". What he is speaking isn't Chinese. It's clearly an attempt to speak Chinese but a failed one. He must have read the words written down in pinyin format and pronounced them using the English alphabet. Pinyin doesn't follow the Chinese alphabet. For example Mike pronounced Zhongwen as Songwen as it would be with the English alphabet. However Zh in Chinese is pronounced like an English alphabet J so the word should be pronounce Jongwen.
Actually Mike was speaking pretty good Chinese, for a foreigner. I'm from Beijing and I teach Mandarin. He pronounced "Zhongwen" as "Zongwen", not "Songwen". Southern Chinese people (those from south of the Yangtze River) do pronounce the consonants "Zh, Ch, Sh" as "Z, C, S". They can't pronounce the two groups distinctively enough. So it's perfectly normal for a foreigner to pronounce them indistinguishably.
During the closing credits, there is an "Apollo Ape" cartoon depicting the continuity of the film's final scene.
