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

It was funny as heck
31 December 2004 | by kwoyakSee all my reviews

Kung Phooey was a light hearted spoof with a lot of very funny scenes. It was not too vulgar or crude but had some moments. The flow of the film was pretty good. The interaction between the characters seemed natural. It was rather witty but not all together original as most spoofs are not. I thought part of the charm in this film was the lack of acting skill by the stereo typed characters. I think this just added to the humor. Face it this is not a big budget film. The plot and delivery are both funny. I would recommend this movie if you need a laugh. I was surprised by the rating. I would not let kids under 13 see the movie Kung Phooey.
