A Deliciously Funny Martial Art's Parody from Stephen Chow
If you're a big fan of Martial Arts movies or Martial Art Parody films... this is the one that should be at the top of your list.  This Cult classic film was made in 1996... way before "Shaolin Soccer" or "Kung Fu Hustle", but is actually directed by the same guy: Stephen Chow.  As a director, Stephen loves to make Parody movies about "Martial Arts"... and this one (in my humble opinion) is by far ...the most outrageous and funny of them all.    …
