I love the cracking noises of his joints.

Bah. He didn't breathe fire or use twenty-foot-long limbs once.

Next.

That was neat, but I had to stop watching it because it was making me nauseous. That cracking sound... yecch.

Yeah, well, you should see what Pilates will do to them!

Forget pilates, what about Tai Bo?

Forget Tai Bo, I'm thinking the eyebrows of the Juice Tiger guy.

While this rates high on the awsome scale, I seriously could have done without the cracking.

I didn't notice the cracking the first time I watched it. After reading this comment, I watched it again, and it was 10 times funnier. Laugh out loud funny.

I washed my hands of the Pilates method.

The cracking was no doubt dubbed, but it certainly didn't help with the nausea factor of watching human limbs do...that. Certainly a very clever concept for a kung fu movie.
I'm wondering, though...was this a kung fu movie with an Indian "yogi" in it, or a Bollywood spoof of a kung fu movie?

Schlimmbesserung for the win!

uosuaq: Kung Fu vs Yoga was a HK production with an Indian as the Yoga master. Came out in 1979. Distributed in the US under the Dolemite Shaolin Collection name. Similar to the Wu Tang Clan and Snoop Dog stuff.

I wish these "distributors" would do something good with the gems like this they get a hold of. Why did Snoop Dog trash such a funny movie and then get MTV to show it? uggh.

I'v got your twenty-foot-long limbs right here.

OMG! How did he make his arms get so long, homunculus? That's impossible! He should sell that trick to the penis pump companies!
