Kung Pow: Enter the Fist is a movie within a movie, created to spoof the martial arts genre. Writer/director Steve Oedekerk uses contemporary characters and splices them into a 1970s kung-fu film, weaving the new and old together. As the main character, The Chosen One, Oedekerk sets off to avenge the deaths of his parents at the hands of kung-fu legend Master Pain. Along the way, he encounters some strange characters, one of which is a cow trained in the martial arts.Written by
Among the main cast of the 70s Kung Fu movie Shao Lin hu ho chen tien hsia (1977), it is only Jimmy Wang Yu who failed to appear entirely in this movie as his image was digitally replaced with that of Steve Oedekerk's. The only time his image appeared here was during the end credits, when the original Chinese cast was being introduced and can also be seen during some shots. See more »
When Master Pain first appears in town to demonstrate his skill, he is wearing his robe while following the mayor. In the next shot, he doesn't have the robe on (a shot where he rips it off was filmed, but omitted). See more »
You have helped me reach the next level. And here I was starting to think you were just a sadistic psycho bitch.

The DVD release has a few more deleted scenes:
"I Believe Song: What Steve's Really Singing": This is the above mentioned song Chosen sings in it's original audio, where he sings about Sam Donaldson.
"Groinkick-O-Rama": In the final fight, Chosen attempts to kick, punch and even head-butt Betty in the groin, to no effect.
"Betty Deals With Burning Fuse": At the start of the final fight, in the temple, Chosen wraps Betty with barbed wire and ignites it. The sparks weaken Betty but he manages to get out of it.
"Blacksmith of Glory": Alternate version of Chosen asking the blacksmith for caps. He gets them while singing without even moving his lips.
"Chosen Takes A Beating: Director's Cut": Extended version of how Betty beats up Chosen after weakening his arms.
The first time i heard of Steve Odekerk was when I first saw the movie "Thumb Wars" on UPN, I found it to be so stupid that it was hilarious. After I saw the movie I quickly went out and bought all six in the series and loved everyone, now the humor in these movies is the stupid off the wall type that I love. Now Kung Pow is the same way and has the most random unexplainable humor that I have seen in a movie. Now I personally love this kind of humor but not everyone does, so I would say if you saw any of his other movies like Ace or Juwanna man these are more "normal" movies and aren't good to go by. But if you have seen the thumb movies or just love weird humor you will love this movie, I loved but that doesn't mean you will, so my advice is if you don't like stupid comedy don't watch this but if you like that kind of stuff you should check it out.
