Storyline

The chosen one from China's mystical Shur-Li Temple embarks on a hilarious quest in this high-kicking spoof of kung-fu films from director Darryl Fong. The champion fighter, Art Chew (Michael Chow Man-Kin), is sent to America by his master on a mission to find a mystical peach that holds the power of eternal life. Assisted by a distant cousin, his best friend, Roy Lee (Colman Domingo), and the comely Sue Shee (Karena Davis), Art travels to the U.S. and must outwit the evil Helen Hu (Joyce Brew) and her henchment in order to complete his mission and earn the eternal respect of his wise, bald Masters. Kung Phooey is Bruce Lee meets Naked Gun in an outrageous spoof with martial arts action and knock-out laughter for the whole family! Written by Anonymous

Great martial arts spoof...
6 July 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Kung Phooey!" is a great comedy spoof, and you will find it particularly enjoyable if you liked movies such as "The Naked Gun" and "Airplane", and of course, also if you like Kung Fu movies.

The story in "Kung Phooey!" was entertaining and had lots of nice touches to it, as there was references all over the place. And just like "Airplane" and "The Naked Gun" they were making fun of just about everything and even themselves.

The jokes are funny and just as stupid as in other spoof movies of the same type, and that is just what makes the movie so much fun. Nothing is holy here, they make fun of all and everything.

As for the action, yes there is action in the movie, it is a Kung Fu spoof after all, then I will say that it was actually quite good. Sure there was poking fun of this as well, but there was some good enough martial arts in the movie as well.

The people they had cast for the roles were doing good jobs, and the names of the characters was just hilarious. I loved that touch.

I was thoroughly entertained by "Kung Phooey!", but of course I do enjoy Kung Fu and comedies. If you like neither of these, I wouldn't recommend you watching "Kung Phooey!" because you will find it pointless.

Let the quest for the ancient peach begin!
