The Foot Fist Way

This hilarious, high-kicking nonsense cost two cents and looks it — hell, it was shot in 19 days, but you'll laugh helplessly anyway. Danny McBride (remember the name) is a comic dynamos Fred Simmons, a loudmouthed bully who operates a tae kwon do (Koreanor "foot fist way") dojo out of a strip mall. Fred idolizes Chuck "the Truck" Wallace (Ben Best), a Steven Seagal wanna-be who gets caugh talling Fred's wife, Suzie (Mary Jane Bostic). The plot is a flimsy excuse for writer-director Jody Hill (he plays another foot-fist master) to string together jokes, the majority of which kick ass. While Fred struggles to stay true to the code of peace, the movie cares only about funny. Good call.
