Storyline

Small town Tae Kwon Do instructor Fred Simmons relishes the power that comes from being the king of a small kingdom. A former champion, Mr. Simmons fancies himself one in the same as his hero, Chuck "The Truck" Wallace, a B-movie Martial Arts film star. Mr. Simmons openly boasts about his self-proclaimed status as "king of the demo" [Tae Kwon Do demonstration], even though he can't nail one to save his life. His only vulnerability lies in his adoration of his wife Suzie - a weakness that comes bubbling to the surface when Mr. Simmons discovers Suzie has cheated on him with her new boss. When Suzie leaves him, Mr. Simmons finds himself slipping into a crushing downward spiral. He struggles to keep "the power" by abusing anyone who challenges him. After losing students and making a fool out of himself, he finds allies in Julio Chavez, his nine-year-old apprentice, and Henry Harrison, one of his students with an "obvious confidence problem." When his bizarre best friend Mike McAllister ... Written by Anonymous

A great comedy for people who enjoy subtle humor.
22 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is hands down one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Don't expect big stars, don't expect people getting hit in the nuts, and don't expect huge testicles on a bulldog. Instead think of an intelligent script, a couple of unknowns who do a fantastic job, and very intelligent delivery. I can't even describe what makes this so funny. It's just the way the whole thing is handled. You have to watch it to believe it.

Unlike what the previous commenter said.... the main actor is NOTHING like a Will Ferrell portrayal. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Will Ferrell likes this movie so much because it is the type of humor he likes, and I've seen some of his stuff when he's not scripted into a quick buck Hollywood shitfest. It's funny. Like this is.

And the little kid Julio.... freakin' AWESOME. Just give it a try, guys.
