Theatrical report

One for the adolescent boys.

There's something about spoof humour that stops just below the lowest common denominator and never gets any higher. LCD humour is understood by everyone on Earth, although not always appreciated. Bodily expulsions (ie faecal, urinal, seminal & gaseous) and intimate activities (eg coitus, masturbation) lead the popularity list, as long as they refer to the male of the species. Female-specific phenomena (eg breast-feeding, menstruation, menopause) are disgusting, however they are sometimes included for their shock value.

Kung pow: Enter the fist adds the thrilling intellectualism inherent in poking fun at cultural and racial stereotypes, non-mainstream lifestyles and cows. Cows are funny the world around but they aren't much of a target. You have to be really desperate to include cows as comic relief in a movie, even if it is really funny.

If you're a 12 to 14-year-old boy or a bloke who never grew up and really likes bad Asian kung fu flicks, this one is made for you.
