    Stephen Chow's brand of kitchen sink film-making was on show this week when Kung Fu Fridays showed his much requested Kung Fu Hustle. This thing really does have everything: cartoon sequences and violence, Shaw Bros. style martial arts, musical numbers and lots of CGI effects, a touching romance, zen Buddhist symbolism, a Shining parody and pee jokes. Chow's usual craziness, though I'm guessing Western crowds might have liked it because it feels so random, like a lot of prime time cartoons do. For an armchair expert, there's lots to love, but it's also a bit of a mess. Comes across as more silly than funny. 4 years ago
