What are critics saying?
Crammed with wild action, obvious but well-mounted gags, and playful effects, the film is refreshingly silly.
Proving there's always a new way to tell an old story, Stephen Chow pulls out all the stops for one of the silliest, sweetest and most fun family films in recent memory.
Comedy-action lunacy of a truly high, and endlessly bizarre, order.
Infectiously entertaining comedy.
The movie has a rambunctious and likable energy that compensates for its unsteady, only intermittently amusing narrative.
An infectious knockabout kung fu comedy with amusing special effects combined with breathtaking stunts.
Everything you've ever loved (or hated) but were afraid to laugh at in Asian martial-arts movies, ''Matrix''-ian bullet-time actioners, and Farrellyesque slapstick comedies -- all rolled into Hong Kong's highest-grossing local production ever.
The film's much-vaunted stunts are deliberately unrealistic, from over-the-top wire-work to CGI-soccer balls that streak through the air like flaming cannon balls.
If you're looking for substance in a Hong Kong movie, stick with Wong Kar-wai ("In the Mood for Love"). But if brainless, predictable fun will do, check out Shaolin Soccer.
