We gave it a C

Writer-director-star Oedekerk achieved a black belt in the asinine arts by redubbing and digitally inserting himself into the 1976 Hong Kong flick Tiger & Crane Fists. The repetitive fight gags are as subtle as a nunchaku to the skull (your powers are weak, oh groin kicks and Matrix parodies), and yet there are fleeting moments so ecstatically goofy you can’t help but giggle. Consider this, grasshopper: What’s more embarrassing — renting this movie, or then laughing at it?
