Darryl Fong's 2002 send-up of the martial arts genre and Hong Kong movies in general is a great deal of fun but only for those with a high tolerance for slapstick and puns. Art Chew (“Gesundheit!”), an orphan schooled in the ancient discipline of kung phooey by the priests of the Shur-li Temple, must battle dragon lady Helen Hu and her henchmen, One Ton and Lo Fat, for possession of a peach that promises eternal youth. Michael Chow is properly stoic as Chew; the rest of the cast gleefully chews the scenery in a manner that should play well on the midnight circuit. 87 min.
