Funny Chinese Movies

 Kung Fu Mahjong

Kung Fu Mahjong was a silly movie with the same couple from Kung Fu Hussle. It was funny, over the top slapstick, but did have a couple of serious moments. A good instant watch on Netflix for a Sunday afternoon with nothing to do.


The Butcher, The Cook, and the Swordsman

The Butcher, The Cook, and the Swordsman was a better story and a little less silly than Kung Fu Mahjong. A little. There is a ridiculous scene where a bunch of whores rap a dumb song to the Butcher.  I really enjoyed this movie--also available on Netflix instant watch. They spoke slowly enough that I could catch a word here and there. Both movies were subtitled, but I couldn't understand anything in Kung Fu Mahjong because it was Cantonese.

I'll have to add these movies to our instant queue. We're always looking for decent movies to watch when we're bored.

I love that the lady from Kung Fu Hustle has the cigarette hanging from her lip the same way she did in King Fu Hustle. Is that her thing?

Nicole--

Yeah, she has that cigarette hanging out in every scene, and sometimes it seems to grow instead of shorten, which is really funny.

I wanna say---The Butcher... is a much better movie than Mahjong. I really enjoyed The Butcher. It had a better story line, better acting, much better visuals.
