Directed by: Steve Oedekerk

Starring: Fei Lung, Leo Lee, Ling-ling Hsieh

Genres: Action, Comedy

Correction: Actually, as has been stated, the film is a parody of martial-arts films in general, and not specifically "Enter the Dragon." In fact, the film uses footage from another film entirely, titled "Tiger and Crane Fist", which holds no relation to "Enter the Dragon." This trivia entry was mere speculation. Also, the subtitle "Enter the Fist" is too obvious a nod to "Enter the Dragon" to be considered trivia.

Corrected entry: When Chosen is fighting the army, he rips of his shirt, but the rest of the movie he has it on. We see at the start of the film he's walking in the desert with nothing except his boots and no extra clothes.


Correction: The Crane School people and Master Tang probably gave him more clothes since he was The Chosen One.

Correction: Someone could have accidentally kicked it, or the wind could have moved it in the time lapse between when he got beat up and when he met Whoa.

Corrected entry: When Chosen One is fighting the army at the beginning and has killed everybody but the leader, you can see the leader has something covering his neck. When he takes out the triangle thing, if you look in slow motion when it zooms in on the leader's triangle symbol on his coat, you can see his neck and nothing is covering it now.


Correction: If you have to use slow motion to spot somethimg, it's not a valid mistake.

Corrected entry: After The Chosen One has fallen down the waterfall after his fight with Betty, watch the waterfall and you will see a whale fall down it.

Correction: This is very, very far too obvious to be considered trivia.

Corrected entry: After Chosen One does the continuous midair back flip, Wimp-Lo goes "hmmmm" (just before he says, "Knock, knock, who's there?") You can see Chosen One saying something while Wimp-Lo goes "hmmmm". There is no audible dialogue coming from Chosen One.

Correction: This could just be like all the other badly dubbed audio jokes in the film.

Correction: No, the hand holding the cell phone is a left hand.

Correction: This is obviously deliberately, it's a comedy movie, that involves "bad tricks" deliberately.

Corrected entry: When Ling first calls to the Chosen One, he is far away and starts running saying "I'm coming". The second time she calls, he is getting nearer. But the third time she calls him, he is far away again.

Correction: This is the joke; not a film mistake.


Correction: This can be accounted for by the constant smacking on his body by the sticks, it certainly would move him about some.

Correction: That is supposed to be the joke of the scene. This is neither an audio or deliberate mistake.

Corrected entry: At the start, when Chosen one hits a hole in that guy, isn't it strange that the shirt goes through with the body? It would only be possible if the shirt was somehow attached to the guys chest.


Correction: The Chosen One hits the guy with such force that it tears the shirt on both sides and the sweat would hold it on.

Corrected entry: When Betty says "I am a great magician, your clothes are red" The mayor is standing up wearing blue, but the next shot, he's sitting and his clothes are red, then it's blue again and he's standing. (00:46:25 - 00:47:15)


Correction: This is exactly the joke the director is trying to make.

Correction: It is in a paddock with grass so it would absorb a puddle quite fast. It wouldn't have made a puddle because it was sprayed over a large area.

Plus it's a joke.

Correction: The enemy leader wouldn't want to mess with someone who could kill dozens of people without breaking a sweat.

Correction: As there's quite a distance between the Chosen One and the army to begin with, it's plausible that they'd walk around and form a circle as they close in on him.

Correction: It was the same place, you just couldn't see the hill in some shots.

Corrected entry: When the 4 guys are beating the Chosen One with the sticks and make him faint, you can see the sticks bending, like they were made of rubber or something.

Correction: The sticks they are using are a special type used in Asia. They are also in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" as spears and many other martial art films.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Chosen One is taking out the eyes of everyone, the eyes are on his fingers facing the camera. Therefore, he must have clawed into their eyes from the back, which would be impossible.

Correction: Since it's obviously possible for him to tear out people's eyes like that, clawing them from the back isn't too improbable. Plus, the movie is a parody of martial arts movies, so they're expected to often exaggerate what is possible.

Corrected entry: In the "waterfall scene" Betty is on a higher level of the waterfall, and the Chosen One is on a lower level. But in the next shot when they go to fight, they are on the same level.

Correction: This was a joke (a very funny one too at the time). The whole waterfall seems to disappear as they fight and the whole scene looks a little different.
