If you think you know your kung fu movies, if you think you have seen all the Shaw Brothers, if you don't hold up your nose to Taiwan, if you know the blind swordsman from the lone wolf, and if you even know who Weng Weng is - then answer me this: Name the first kung fu comedy movie? If you answered "Mad Mad Swords" or "Mad Mad Mad Swords" come and collect your prize. I highly recommend this for fans of the genre - with a caveat. It will test your skills of pop culture history, martial arts clichés, and recognition of actors. Yes, that's Sammo Hung, at 19 years of age, on a horse, in blue, in brown, and getting stabbed. As a comedy it has all the over-acting and camera mugging of Jackie Chan at his best. The fights are even choreographed for comedy. Don't concern yourself about plot or sense, just take it scene by scene and get a few laughs. My favorite with a slight spoiler warning about one gag is the "inner power scene." You know the cliché - at the teahouse the hero/villain display their inner power by doing impossible telekinesis or mind over matter displays, or you could just toss a bowl of noodles in the guys face!
