Product Description

Writer/director Steve Oedekerk (The Nutty Professor and Ace Ventura 2: When Nature Calls) creates an off-the-wall comedy and a new martial arts genre that substantially alters dubbed action footage from a 1970's martial arts picture with a brand new twist in the story line and altered dialogue. The story follows The Chosen One (Oedekerk) as he seeks to avenge the death of his parents at the hands of the evil and seemingly indestructible kung fu legend, Master Pain.

Have you ever seen the commercials? It is like the spot light of all the bad things in this movie. But maybe it was a good idea, because if you come in with high expectations, it would be a major disappointment.
Kung Pow was perhaps the funniest movie right up there with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it is complete nonsense! You think that all the dubbing is horrible?? It's supposed to be that way! All the idiots that hate the movie make stupid comments, they don't get the big joke. It's supposed to be totally idiotic. Therein lies the comedy, the complete insanity of it.
But I will say this, the baby scene and the cow fight where just embarrasing to watch. They are perhaps the worst parts of the movie. But otherwise all of the original stuff and the new stuff that Steve made is pure comedic genius! Many scenes HAD to be toned down in order to match the grainy texture of the original Tiger & Crane Fist movie.
The DVD extras are amazing! There is a "What where they really saying" audio option in which you get to see what the actors where really saying before they got dubbed over (includes audio from Tiger & Crane Fist and the funny stuff the new cast said). There's even a "Lost Book on Tape" audio option, in which a English man says all the lines with hilarious results! There is so many DVD extras, it's a very good deal for only $14 (though I got mine for $10 at a Wal-Mart, MUCH better deal). The deleted scenes are awesome.
This is perhaps the best spoof of kung-fu flicks just because of the pure insanity!
The best part is, that many people didn't get the joke, and make fools of themselves when they comment on this movie and whine about the parts that were SUPPOSED to be bad and stupid.
Please, rent this movie, and just shut your mind off.

"Kung Pow!" is an extremely original and hillarious comedy, period! I LOVED this film, it had me rolling on the floor! There are a few amount of clunkers (the talking tongue and the French aliens could've been left out), and it begins to lose it's charm about two thirds of the way through, but most of it is ingenious! I have no idea why critics hate this movie so much, don't listen to them. It is one of the funniest movies in recent years whether those uptight cinema snobs admit it or not. It's tempting to list every hillarious moment in this film, but you really should see it yourself. I know it looks stupid, but just trust me. You WILL laugh, and laugh often. It's not the perfect comedy, but it's pretty damn close! It breathes new life into a genre that's currently overflowing with clones of the "different people switch places" and "white guy meets black cop" plots.
If you enter a film like this with a bad attitude, like most of the critics out there, you'll hate it. If you enter it with an open mind and the willingness to laugh at a group of really stupid yet really clever jokes, you may find it to be the funniest comedy that you've seen in a long, long, time.
I give "Kung Pow! Enter the Fist" a very solid 8.0 out of 10.0

This is the kind of goofy movie that lets you break out the popcorn, sit on the bedroom floor with a bunch of friends, and just laugh your heads off for an hour and a half. The jokes are both clever and wonderfully stupid. They will amuse, enthuse and most of all get you to laugh hysterically and remember the characters for their funny voices, silliness, and originality. There are so many gags worth mentioning in this movie that it's best just to see it for oneself. A friend attempted to explain it to me before we watched it together, and every time something happened that I recalled her mentioning, I said "AH!" But her descriptions, which were hilarious in themselves, couldn't even have done it justice. Especially considering the wealth of other jokes I laughed at. I like to watch this movie more than once. You probably should too; laughing is good for people. Try "Kung Pow: Enter the Fist." Go get some snacks, and prepare the long rubber glove. Eenie, meenie, minie, mo...I wonder where my glove will go.

First of all this isn't a good movie, in the whole 80-min. span of it there is no real plot, nothing asmirable about the filming, nor one witty joke, but that doesn't mean I didn't have a good time. Steve Oedekerk has concocted some of the most idiotic stuff ever to be filmed (Ace Ventura, the Thumb series, Jimmy Neutron) but this reigns over all those things. Kung Pow is cross between Modern footage of Oedekerk and a select few othe "actors", and footage from an old Chinese kung-fu movie called "Tiger and Crane fists", blended in with each other. Oedekerk has muted the dialogue spoken by the Chinese actors of the original movie and dubbed in his own voice, or maybe I should voices, (he plays several ridiculous characters.
As far as the plot goes basically an evil Chinese uh.. guy named Master Pain (later he calls himself Betty) has killed an entire Japanese family looking for a member of it called the Chosen One, who is the infant of the family. After a stupid and not-so-funny sequence of the baby kicking his ass they flee, and the baby winds up on his own. He travels and grows up and fights people on the way, all in search of the man who killed his family. He goes to a weird old man named Master Tang to train him and help him find Master Pain. He finds him, there are many pointless scenes following- inclding one spoofing the Lion King, and then a big battle between the Chosen One and Betty. Using his sacred gift (a tongue with a face on it) the Chosen One defeats Betty and that is the end of that. Stupid yes, but I promise that if your not a real tight-wad, you'll be amused by this movie.
