Originally, Miramax was supposed to release this film with the title renamed "Kung Fu Soccer," with a dubbed dialogue (with the participation by Stephen Chow himself), but it was scrapped due to the resistance of Chow. See more »
In the English dub the team "mo gui dui" is translated into "Team Evil", even though that has nothing to do with the original name, a better translation is "Devils" or "Demons". See more »
Using Tai Chi Kung Fu to make steamed buns - what a brilliant notion. Fill the pot from heaven with sweet buns; fantastic when done. You're a Kung Fu master, I can see, and your homemade treats look so tasty.

Or: the funniest movie I've seen this decade! I was expecting a moderate little asian comedy worthy about an IMDB 7 TOPS, but at the end, I was forced to give this 9 points! See, no other comedy has actually brought me to tears laughing in recent history! Either mr. Chow is a genius or he's one lucky sonova. See, "Shaolin soccer" just happens to press all the right buttons, and in right places! In the little "relief" spots it's as dramatic as it's supposed to be, and the rest, it's big, big, BIG laughs all the way. HIGHLY recommended! P.S. If you don't like this movie, your heart must be made of stone and you have absolutely NO sense of humour. My condolences.
