    Consistently silly and intermittently laugh-out-loud funny spoof.

    On the up side, there are some genuinely funny jokes, and Oedekerk has been wise enough to keep the running time down to 82 minutes, including the eight-minute closing credit sequence (which is worth staying through its entirety). But Kung Pow! is no "What's Up, Tiger Lily?"
  3. An inept, tedious spoof of '70s kung fu pictures, it contains almost enough chuckles for a three-minute sketch, and no more.

    Like a slug that crawls across the screen for eighty minutes before dying of its own nausea.

    If, for whatever reason, you do find yourself watching it, you may begin to ponder one of life's larger dilemmas: the fact that something can be done does not necessarily mean it should be done.

    Does this even count as a movie?

    This movie is a classic stupid funny movie that does what films are meant to do entertain. No it did not have characters you could relate to but, you sure as heck laugh at them. Expand

    Give it a 10, if you're so great
    why would you give this movie a 0 out of 100, it's the funniest movie from 2002, it's even better than most
    of these days movies, critics you think losing is winning.
    I remember a long time ago, when a friend told me there would be a chosen one.
    I really like the band N-Sync. My favorite member is Harpo. I think there's a Harpo. If not there should be.
    So which score should i choose?
    How many points? Would you say 10 million?
    this movie has everything to make you feel great but i only can give it a 10.

    This movie is hilarious from start to finish. Its the parody of parody films imo. I am super pissed off that they didnt make a sequel (as hinted in the film). A must see comedy imo. Expand

    I LOVE this movie. There are so many jokes that were implemented in this movie that I've always wanted to see - and here they are. The movie is funny from beginning to end with just a few snoozers. I wish there was a sequel. Expand

    One of the funniest films I have ever seen. It helps if you have some familiarity with Hong Kong martial arts films. You will either love it or hate it, and I loved it. Expand

    do not listen to any reviews over 5/100. this has to be the worst excuse for a movie ever. it boasts immature and dumb jokes ever brought up in history riled up in one of the worst plots i have ever seen. only hardcore comedy fans would even think about liking a movie this disgraceful. Expand
