This one shows how to do it right.
2 April 2007 | by (Southern California, USA) – See all my reviews

Just a quick note to say this is horribly underrated on the IMDb User Ratings. I'm sorry, but not only is this funnier than Kung Pow, it's funnier than What's Up Tiger Lily. There, I said it and I'm glad.

I collect comedy dub jobs and so far this is my all time favorite. The writing is outstanding, the voices nicely match the characters, and the dubbing is tight. So many of these dub jobs go horribly wrong in a muck of sloppy dubbing and a numbing stream of toilet/sex/fart/gay 'jokes... lather rinse repeat. See 'Night of the Day of the Dawn of the...', or "Don't Ask Don't Tell" for examples of the genre gone wrong. This one shows how it should be done. (I will say that Oscar Meyer joke is a real groaner, but that's the only one.) Yeah, there's loads of sex jokes but guess what; they're actually *funny*, what with being built around actual good jokes. As opposed to the "any dirty remark is funny" school of comedy dubbing.

I just love this one, I wish there were more like it.
