"Kung Fu Hustle" is hysterical! I love the droll humor. The subtitle to the Chinese language version are better than the English voice-overs.

The villain known as "The Beast" is seated in a chair, being interrogated by the skeptical Crocodile Gang boss. A member of the gang hits "The Beast" in the face, but Beast only mocks him. The blows come harder and harder, but The Beast just laughs them off. In frustration, the gang member pulls out his gun and points it in The Beast's face.

In a smooth motion, The Beast takes the gun out of the gang member's hands and admires it, asking earnestly, "Do they make these for men?"

This is a movie that I'd like to watch again and again.

I remember this one. Very wacky comedy and great visuals.

That is a fantastically laugh out loud movie with GREAT martial arts. I love it.

Also, be sure to check out Shaolin Soccer as well. Written by the same guy with same actors. Another side splittingly funny and heartwarming movie with great kung fu.

I thought the producers were working on another movie that would be similar?

Love this movie. It had the feeling of Looney Tunes during the funny parts.

Great movie. If Chuck Jones had ever directed a kung fu flick, it would have looked just like this.

The part with the snakes had me laughing so hard I thought I'd cry. I loved that old landlord lady. And the scenes where they were looking for a champion and then a challenger to fight were hysterical.
I liked the " Kill Bill" movies too.
