Kung Pow: Enter the Fist is a movie within a movie, created to spoof the martial arts genre. Writer/director Steve Oedekerk uses contemporary characters and splices them into a 1970s kung-fu film, weaving the new and old together. 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
Footage was used from the film Shao Lin hu ho chen tien hsia (1977) (a different translation of the title is given in the opening credits). Most of the archive footage appears to be from The Savage Killers (1976). Actors were digitally inserted into scenes from the original film. See more »

The DVD shows several deleted/alternate scenes. Among these are:
A musical number by Chosen One
The Evil Betty singing a song based on his "owl and bungee cord" joke
The Evil Betty searching for two characters hidden within a bell
A sequence where after being captured in the tiny net, Chosen One is taken back to Betty's lair and tortured by an old master. The torture includes being given a tattoo on his face of the word "Mouth" and an arrow pointing to his mouth. Chosen manages to escape in a battle sequence where he performs kung fu with his only free appendage (his arms and legs are bound and he is male so figure it out). After his escape he is comforted by the mono-breasted Whoa, who magically removes the tattoo.
All of the new footage was shot with the actors saying nonsense lines (often discussions of pies and pastries), then re-dubbed with the final dialogue so that what is heard would never match lip movements. The DVD contains the option to view the entire movie with this original audio track.

I liked it.
I have watched my fair share of dubbed foreign movies in my time. I have also seen a lot of subtitled movies. I prefer subtitled because with dubbing I always felt that sometimes the people dubbing the movie were leaving stuff out or changing what the characters said just to fit their mouths. Here we have a guy who not only changes what they say to a ridiculous degree, he also added himself to the flick. This movie is actually an old martial arts movie. The dubbing has been changed though and some new scenes were added. I found this movie very hilarious. Though it is probably just me, as this one didn't score very well. I don't care though cause it just worked for me. I usually find with comedies though that I prefer the obscure stuff to the more mainstream hits that usually show all the highlights in the trailers. The weakest parts of this one are the scenes that were added to the movie while the best stuff is when the main character interjects himself into the movie or adds things to the original movie. Though none of it to me was particularly weak. You may want to read other reviews though as this is not a comedy for every one.
