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 kem

Trivia

The "intermission" that appears following the tiny net scene was a last-minute invention by Steve Oedekerk, after a lengthy interrogation and escape scene was cut from the film. The music heard during the faux-intermission is actually recycled bumper music from steve.oedekerk.com (1997). See more »

Goofs

When the infant Chosen One is rolling down a hill, his shoe falls off. In the next shot, he has both of them on again. Shortly thereafter, he loses the same shoe a second time (exact same footage), and then both of them reappear on his feet. Some other segments are shown 3 or 4 times. See more »

Best movie ever!
10 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

From the man who brought you ThumbWars(My name is Ubidoob Banubi. I have the silliest name in the galaxy!), ThumbTanic(This won't help us! This is a monkey!) and every other great thumb film. Steve Oedekerk, a god amongst men, brings us another hit. This film has everything from a CGI kung-fu cow to Woah, the one breasted kung-fu chick. And who can forget Wimp-Lo, who the crane clan purposefully trained wrong (I am bleeding, making me the victor!).

This is single handedly the funniest film I have ever watched. Not many films can get me going like this one did. I still remember the moment when I knew this was possibly the greatest film of all time. The moment just after ling said "He's dead. Except for his hair and nails, dead." What happened after wards took me completely by surprise.

My dream film is to have Steve Oedekerk and Jhonen Vasquez work on a film together. They are the funniest men in the film industry today.
