New York Daily News
Silly, perfect fun.
50
Variety
Consistently silly and intermittently laugh-out-loud funny spoof.

New Times (L.A.)
On the up side, there are some genuinely funny jokes, and Oedekerk has been wise enough to keep the running time down to 82 minutes, including the eight-minute closing credit sequence (which is worth staying through its entirety). But Kung Pow! is no "What's Up, Tiger Lily?"
25
Entertainment Weekly
Processed comedy chop suey.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
If ever there's been a martial-arts movie that makes you feel as if you've been kicked in the head, surely it's Kung Pow! Enter the Fist.
20
Obvious and, frankly, 25 years too late.

New York Post
An inept, tedious spoof of '70s kung fu pictures, it contains almost enough chuckles for a three-minute sketch, and no more.
10
Los Angeles Times
The result is hopelessly inane, humorless and under-inspired.
10
L.A. Weekly
If, for whatever reason, you do find yourself watching it, you may begin to ponder one of life's larger dilemmas: the fact that something can be done does not necessarily mean it should be done.

Where the hell are those Hollywood Ninja Assassins when you really need 'em?
