Kung Pow: Enter the Fist is a movie within a movie, created to spoof the martial arts genre. Writer/director Steve Oedekerk uses contemporary characters and splices them into a 1970s kung-fu film, weaving the new and old together. As the main character, The Chosen One, Oedekerk sets off to avenge the deaths of his parents at the hands of kung-fu legend Master Pain. Along the way, he encounters some strange characters, one of which is a cow trained in the martial arts.

User Review

You either love it or hate it — and I loved it!!!!

Rating: 10/10

I laughed so hard I could hardly breathe. This is one of the funniest
films I have ever seen.

The Screen-It Our Take reviewer doesn't like "silly" humor. I do. My
most common comments while watching: "That's SO STUPID!!" (when I could
catch a breath from laughing) and "What was THAT??"

There are no swear words, no realistic violence, and no sex scenes.
It's just FUN!! My 13-year-old son & I rented it and watched it twice
in one week. It was even funnier the second time.

My husband hated it. He thought it was the most "un-funny" film he'd
ever seen.

You either love it or hate it.
