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

What A Movie!
8 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I just rented Kung Phooey. Did I like it? I normally return movies I rent the next day so that I can get an early return credit, instead of keeping them for the full rental period. I rent 2-3 movies a week and I've only kept 2 movies past the first day. Kung Phooey was one of them. I wound up watching it almost daily. The comedy worked on all levels. From stuff my kids laughed at (and me, too), to higher brow stuff that had me rolling on the floor. I especially like the scene with the Jean Claude-esque character. I find myself quoting their fight scene at random moments throughout the day. Many 'indie' films tend to be 'serious' and wind up being melodramatic. I haven't seen many indie comedies, much less ones that made me laugh as much as this film. Come to think of it, most big-budget Hollywood comedies don't make me laugh as much as this film. Great work all around!
