Critic Reviews for Kung Pow! Enter the Fist
Naturally, much fun is made of the poorly synchronized dialogue inherent in kung fu flicks, but the gag pales with repetition, especially since Billy Crystal and Robin Williams did it better years ago.
Not since Freddy Got Fingered has a major release been so painful to sit through.
Kung Pow is Oedekerk's realization of his childhood dream to be in a martial-arts flick, and proves that sometimes the dreams of youth should remain just that.
Full of flatulence jokes and mild sexual references, Kung Pow! is the kind of movie that's critic-proof, simply because it aims so low.
Audience Reviews for Kung Pow! Enter the Fist
Pointless, uninspired and above all awful parody of great martial arts films, Kung Pow is a film that is poorly conceived and has an awful, sloppy script to work with. I laughed maybe once during the entire length of the film, and once I was finished it, I realized that this was one of the stupidest films that I had seen. The film relies on bland jokes and crappy voice over, and yeah I know that's the whole point, but still, it's terrible. Even if the over exaggeration and bad dubbing is intentional, they could have made it funnier than this. This film is just bad. Kung Pow is a sloppy parody film that is lazy, uninspired and a total waste of time. I hated this film and thought it should never have been made. I just thought it was a pointless film that offered nothing anything funny or creative for the viewer. Seeing this was boring, and the result was a mediocre film that did not deliver anything funny. The humor in the film is more irritating than anything, and it just ends up making you feel made at how pointless this whole film is. The era of great parody films is over; Hollywood should stop making trash like this as it is quite unfunny, lazy and dull. If you want a great parody film, watch Airplane! That film is a classic and a perfect example of good satire. This, this is a sad example of a bad parody film that fails on every level. Avoid this if you're considering watching it. Watching paint dry was more hilarious than this.
Really silly and kind of dumb, but the filmmaker's hearts were in the right place. It's just too bad that theiir skills are a little weak and evidence of ineptitude is obvious. They're not as bad as Ed Wood, but I think his films are a tad more entertaining. This wasn't real terrible, but I didn't laugh as much as they probably wanted me to.
Kung Pow! Enter the Fist is a film you either get, or don't. It's incredibly stupid and simple, but it works. To view the trailer is to watch the worst parts of the movie, parts that should have been cut out. The kung-fu cow and the woman with one breast are really out of place and distract from Oedekerk's surreal genius of simply overdubbing an existing film. Technologically it's also impressive, inserting Oedekerk into an existing film seamlessly. Kung Pow also has some great characters which are all voiced by Oedekerk. Whether it's squeaky shoes or the ventriloquists, there's plenty here to love. Let's not forget the quoteability "THAT'S A LOT OF NUTS".
