As the main character, The Chosen One, Oedekerk sets off to avenge the deaths of his parents at the hands of kung-fu legend Master Pain. Along the way, he encounters some strange characters, one of which is a cow trained in the martial arts. Written by kem

Trivia

As Mu-Shu Fasa disappears, he says, "This is CNN..." James Earl Jones is the voice that says this famous line on the CNN television channel, as well as the voice of Mufasa in The Lion King (1994) (of which Mu-Shu Fasa is an obvious parody). See more »

Quotes

Narrator: Like, crap man, look at that. That's like his stomach plug, on the ground back there. You don't see that every day. I mean that doesn't even seem possible if you think about it, with body organs and cartilage and bones. I mean I'm no doctor or nothin' but that was like one clean chunk.

Best movie ever!
10 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

From the man who brought you ThumbWars(My name is Ubidoob Banubi. I have the silliest name in the galaxy!), ThumbTanic(This won't help us! This is a monkey!) and every other great thumb film. Steve Oedekerk, a god amongst men, brings us another hit. This film has everything from a CGI kung-fu cow to Woah, the one breasted kung-fu chick. And who can forget Wimp-Lo, who the crane clan purposefully trained wrong (I am bleeding, making me the victor!).

This is single handedly the funniest film I have ever watched. Not many films can get me going like this one did. I still remember the moment when I knew this was possibly the greatest film of all time. The moment just after ling said "He's dead. Except for his hair and nails, dead." What happened after wards took me completely by surprise.

My dream film is to have Steve Oedekerk and Jhonen Vasquez work on a film together. They are the funniest men in the film industry today.
