     I will admit to laughing at this movie a couple of times. It’s so stupid no human can resist the urge to laugh at it. Even though humorous, Kung Pow! Enter The Fist is a complete disaster on every level. After seeing this movie, I pose myself with one question: how could a person in all humanity like this terrible material? My brother loved it! How? Why? I do not know, but I do know one thing: this is not a good movie, and you should not see it unless you would like to be mindlessly baffled with horrible, not to mention poorly dubbed humor straight out of the toilet.

     Kung Pow! Enter the Fist begins with a family consisting of a mother, father, two young children and a baby cozily gathered within a home. When a man comes to the door he proceeds to kill everyone; but the one person he can’t kill is the baby, the only one who fights back. After the baby pees in the guys face, beats him up and flies through the air with rabid animals, the killer finally gives up and and sets the house on fire causing the baby to fall down the hillside near the home. After this, a series of extremely funny jokes begins, as well as the saga of “The Chosen One”.

     I’ve come to one conclusion about director Steve Oedekerk, and that is that is he a freak. Despite his exceptional screen-writing on Patch Adams and The Nutty Professor, every movie he has even been remotely evolved with has been horrible. In Kung Pow!, he directs, and also plays the role of “The Chosen One”, who is an utter-squeezing monster on an extremely farfetched journey of nothing but insanity. The guy is one of the most goofy and out-there person that I have ever seen in my life! His outlandish ideas are funny to a certain extent, but some are just on an unexplainable level of immortality.

     This movie was hilarious, yet the shallow plot outdid the comedy. Even though I occasionally laughed, most of the time I was shaking my head hoping for this horrible motion-picture to be over. The effortless material in Kung Pow! Enter The Fist was ugly and satire. Even though a sequel is described in the movie, I have my doubts that they will make one, partially because of the low-gross this movie produced, and partially because every critic in America, just like me, relentlessly downed in.

     If you like potty humor than I can confidently say that this movie is for you, there is a lot of it. The blunt jokes that Oedekerk produces are sometimes funny and sometimes horribly tasteless. Your opinion on this movie is determined by your tastes, and morals for that matter. I hated Kung Pow!, but if you’re like most of the mindless teenagers out there you probably will love it. Fans of this material will go crazy for this film and want an encore, others will not; with that said, I will leave you with one decision…Will you take a dive into the mediocre Kung Pow! Enter The Fist?
