One reviewer mentioned the obvious innuendos, but there are many more than you would expect. In addition to Flying Chimpanzee's "Champion Spear", "To Eat Someone's Tofu" is a Chinese idiom that means to flirt with a female. See more »
Wing Chun surprises with its fast pace and excellent physical comedy. Fight scenes are also convincing. The entire setting is not very original, but amusing and that is what really counts. There were ultimately moments when the film feels a bit messy, but in all wire- and stunt-work has been done wonderfully and cleanly.
The characters are all rather likable. The bad guys are rather faceless, but not a big disappointment. The soundtrack has a classic 80s sound to it which makes the movie stand out in a nice campy way.
The film isn't really a drama or action film, but rather a fast-paced slapstick. A fun experience and an admirable Kung Fu flick.
