Do the Hustle

Went to see Kung Fu Hustle last night. I haven’t laughed so hard in a theater in a long time. If Tex Avery and Jackie Chan had a baby, this would be it. Like Shaun of the Dead, this isn’t so much a parody of its genre as it is a funny movie that uses the conventions of its genre to full effect. It definitely makes me want to look for other Stephen Chow movies, like Shaolin Soccer and From Beijing With Love. (It also makes me ashamed to find myself lumped in with the rest of the West in limiting my martial arts fare to Jackie Chan movies).
