    Consistently silly and intermittently laugh-out-loud funny spoof.
  2. 40
    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.
  4. The result is hopelessly inane, humorless and under-inspired.

    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?

    I have watched this movie more times than any other movie. I honestly think it deserves an even bigger cult following than it has.

    I have watched this movie more times than any other movie. I honestly think it deserves an even bigger cult following than it has.
    This movie is so silly and creative, with so much work going into it while still not taking itself seriously AT ALL and still seeming so effortless. One of the most quotable movies of all time, for sure.
    It certainly doesnt deserve to be one of the lowest-rated movies on Metacritic! The User Score is testament to the injustice that is the critic's score.

    It's almost unbelievable how hilarious this film truly is. If you love Monty Python, you'll certainly love this. The absurdity is It's almost unbelievable how hilarious this film truly is. If you love Monty Python, you'll certainly love this. The absurdity is something to cherish. It takes masterful skill to create such comedic bliss with this spoofing style. I will admit though, sometimes it can be a bit childish, but most of the time, I'm laughing harder than I ever have at film(other than The Holy Grail). I can confidently say this was the funniest movie of the decade. Expand
