The plot: A comedian decides to quit making comedies and, instead, become an international martial arts superstar, despite being thoroughly incompetent.

There are some funny moments in this movie, but most of them involve the co-stars, rather than the leads. I can see what they were intending, but I'm not really sure that it worked. Much of the movie is meant to be stupid or intentionally bad, which I guess works, but it fails to be funny. The execution just isn't all that great. I think the biggest problem is that they just couldn't find a balance between the self-conscious, ironic, intentionally bad scenes and the funny scenes.

It's not horrible, but it's a bit uneven, and there are parts that are a bit slow and boring. It's also got lots of warmed-over Internet memes, like Chuck Norris references, ironic homophobia, ironic homoeroticism, and an ironic appreciation of bad B movies. If you still laugh at Chuck Norris jokes, five years after most of the Internet got tired of them, then this is the movie for you. If you can't imagine living your life without copious amounts of irony, this is the movie for you. If you're a bit tired of all this stuff, then I'd advise you just watch a Christopher Guest mockumentary.
