Or in the English release, "Kung Fu Hustle". Pretty entertaining, all in all..."Gangs of New York" meets "West Side Story" meets "Hero". Fighting, funny, and dancing. In Cantonese with English subtitles, which makes for funny lines in itself. My favorites:
"The slippers are a little crappy."
"Don't put your snot on the glass."
"All of his bones and tendons are broken. The herbs should help."
Favorite character name: "Donut"
Favorite commentary from Alex, during the scene in which Sing, who desperately wants to join "The Axe Gang" has to break into an asylum for the criminally insane, and as soon as he gets in, the building glows with evil and a river of blood comes rushing down the hallway: "Uh, I think this is the moment when I'd decide to beat it outta there and settle for joining 'The Pointy Stick Gang'."
Biggest regret: Not enough all-male line-dancing.
That's about as much of a review as I'm capable of right now...if there is a man in your life (or if you are a man), rent it.
