[font=Arial]This is yet another older kung fu film directed and instructed by Jackie Chan, the fight scenes are well coreographed seeing that Jackie Chan was the coreographer but its more humorous than action packed, its still really good though, I guess if you don't like old kung fu films you wouldn't like this one, but it is still a classic film, and even had a rock band named after it. Kung-Fu Junkies only. [/font]
[font=Arial]I have seen this movie so many times and I am still not bored with it. This is another older Kung Fu Film and it was Jackie Chans first leading role. The story line is the same as every Kung Fu film, But it is so good, I must say that the fight scenes don't closely compare to Chinese Tiger, but just knowing Jackie Chan plays in it helps. this is a really old one, but it is also really good. Me and a friend of mine remade this on with our own voice overs and it was so good, I loved it... this one is great and I recommend it, It can also be found under the name Snake Fist Fighter. Another Kung-Fu junkie dream.[/font]
[left][font=Arial]Parody is often a genre in films, but its is rare when we get a film that is a self-parody. "Pauly Shore is Dead" is such a film. In his first feature film in several years, the ubiquitous, titular 80's personality, star of MTV, a Fox sitcom and a handful of increasingly less and less funny films, offers us a vision of the "15 minutes of fame" rule run amuck. [/font][/left]
[left][font=Arial]Here, the plot is pretty basic: Shore, unable to get a gig when his 15 minutes are up, fakes his own death, gains fame as a "comic genius who died before his time," is discovered to be a faker, and is sent to prison for defrauding the public. In prison, Shore shares his cell with Todd Bridges and discovers how to handle his public persona and accept his has-been status as a celebrity. ("You'll always be Willis.") [/font][/left]
[left][font=Arial]But Shore spends a lot of time setting up his story and we get to see lots of cool flashbacks of his career, including his work on MTV, Fox, and on stage as a young stand-up comic. It's a nice overview of his career that serves as much as exposition as it does as a sort of "E! True Hollywood Story." And while the film can get a little repetitive at times, it never really gets boring. [/font][/left]
[left][font=Arial]The film is mainly so hilarious due to it's numerous cameos. Ben Stiller, Bill Maher, Ellen Degeneres, and plethora of others comment on Shore here in hilarious terms. And in addition to Bridges spoofing his own real life story, we get moments of guffaw-inducing self-parody with Rico Suave (Gerardo), Tommy Lee, and a hilarious turn from Carrot Top. It's amazing how many B-list celebrities are willing to play along with Shore here and it makes the film often laugh out loud funny. [/font][/left]
[left][font=Arial]But "Pauly Shore is Dead" works best for the same reason Shore's appearances in the 80's worked. It's just too damn easy to like him. Regardless of his goofball persona, Shore has always seemed to be honest and good-hearted young man. His homage to his late friend and mentor Sam Kinison in this film reminds us of just how important comedy can be in all of our lives, especially when it's laced with genuine warmth and affection.

I love this movie, I saw this one first and this is the one that made me want to see the others, I really really really like this movie, and see the review below for more. I liked the first one more, but this one was just as good, if that makes any since.
This movie was so awesome, The acting, the environments, the actors themselves, and of course the story. This movie lasts three hours and I have seen it more times than I can count, it is definetly my favorite LOTR film.
