Remember Kung Fu Hustle? The movie by Stephen Chow? Well, if you've never heard of it, or never watched it before, go do it now :P
I just re-watched it earlier and have agreed that this is one of Stephen's best movies. To tell you the truth, I used to like watching his crazy acts when I was small, then slowly he got boring. Until Kung Fu Hustle of course. Now I feel like giving CJ7 a go. What do you think?
Anyway, let's do some video recap of Kung Fu Hustle shall we? I think it's no harm watching these parts, they're not spoilers, if you haven't watched it (that's the thing with comedies, nothing is a spoiler)
Remember the Axe Gang and their really funny dance?
This part was so funny (it still is), the cinema was roaring with laughter. Fine, we Malaysians find it funny okay?
And then there's the road runner and the landlady's magnificient flight. Remember that?
There's a reason why she's chasing him and it's super funny too but I can't find a Chinese version of it, only the dubbed ones. I'm not putting those here. You gotta look at the English dubbed ones. The words they used are not as funny, worse still is, their intonations are all wrong! If they think that's funny, then they'll die of laughter if they can understand Cantonese. I'm not trying to start a racist slur, but I feel no one can make a sentence any funnier than the Chinese. It's like there are words where you just can't translate no matter what, and if you don't understand it, you're on the losing side, humor wise.
Anyway, the original one I found is this. It's slightly longer but it gets funny (after 3 minutes). Trust me.
Shit it's 2:30 AM! And I'm hungry. Anyway, go watch it if you haven't.
