A refreshing comedy that's ''stupid'' -- but [[NarmCharm amusingly so]] -- '''''Kung Pow! Enter The Fist''''' is a 2002 film written and directed by lead actor Steve Oedekerk. The film uses footage from an obscure kung-fu movie called ''Tiger and Crane Fist'', along with newly-shot and bluescreened footage (mainly to insert Oedekerk into the film), to create a rather anarchic parody of kung-fu movies in general. Virtually every line is insane -- and very quotable; it was difficult choosing which one to put up at the top -- and everyone's voice (save [[MsFanservice Whoa]]) is dubbed over by Oedekerk himself.

* FarEast: There's more than a few Japanese accoutrements to this Chinese movie - Mushufasa has a pair of katanas, and the Chosen One fights a guy in a kendo suit early on. In a smaller example, while ''Kung Pow'' is based on a Hong Kong movie (so the original language was Cantonese), the Chosen One's family speak Mandarin in the first scene.
