YMMV: Kung Fu Hustle
  • Crazy Awesome:
    • The Beast, especially his Toad Style.
    • The Tailor does not put on his arm rings in any fashion resembling "normal"; it's either yank them down from some curtains or have them stacked on a table (where he then slaps the table hard, shooting them up into the air and down onto his arms).
    • The Lion's Roar definitely counts. Especially with a mega-phone in the form of a bronze bell. Even The Beast didn't know what hit him.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: You really don't know whether to laugh or cry at the CGI FX needed to depict Sing's head getting bashed INTO the floor, deeper and deeper each time, over and over...
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Most of these are mixed with below trope, but the most awesome goes to, of course, Sing's final attack against The Beast and how he easily disarms his An Qi.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny:
    • A lot, Sing and his useless sidekick's attempt to assassinate the land lady is but one of the many.
    • Not to mention the scene directly after where Sing, fleeing from the enraged land lady, uses the knife stuck in his shoulder as a rearview mirrour.
    • (splat) "Who's throwing handles!?"
  • Crowning Music of Awesome:
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Yuen Qiu (Landlady), who earned an award nomination and several roles in later movies.
  • This Is Your Premise on Drugs: What happens with the kung fu flick genre drinks a mixture of Red Bull and Powerthirst.
