Directed by: Steve Oedekerk

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

Genres: Action, Comedy

Continuity mistake: At the start of the movie when the people are training, Wimp Lo and Ling come out, the camera is right where those people were practicing and you can't see any of them, but you can still hear the noises of them practicing. (00:12:55)


Continuity mistake: When Betty goes outside to show his skill, the Chosen One is holding a fish bone. However, he did not have it in the shot before.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ling is putting mercury on The Chosen One's hand, she tells him to 'rub it in my hair', but look closely at The Chosen One's hand. Now the mercury, salt, and lime is gone, indicating they washed it off for the next shot.

Other mistake: When the Chosen One asks for a pound of nuts, he's handed a thing of flowers, not nuts. In the next scene we now show him feeding the "nuts" to a squirrel.


Revealing mistake: When Chosen One and Ling are talking and Chosen One says/shouts, "I implore you to reconsider", look at his head as the camera zooms in. After the zoom stops, you can see that Chosen One's head "grows" for about a half-second, the result of a flub-up of the special effects. (His face is pasted onto another actor's body.).

Revealing mistake: During the scene where Betty is at the table with the Chosen One, when the camera is behind the Chosen One, you can see a mustache on him sticking out on the side. The Chosen One does not have a mustache. This also happens when Betty is performing his skill. This is where Steve Oedekerk is replacing Master Tang instead of the Chinese guy he usually does. (00:25:35)

Continuity mistake: When Chosen sees all his friends wounded in the field, he has a tattoo saying "mouth" with an arrow on his left cheek. The tattoo can't be seen after this scene. There was a deleted scene where Chosen One was captured and tortured, one of the tortures was to tattoo an arrow that said 'mouth' on it. In another one, the "one boob" woman uses magic to erase it. Still a mistake, but there's the reason. (00:54:45 - 00:56:15)


Continuity mistake: When the Chosen One is meeting with Master Tang, in the first shot you see that Master Tang is sitting down. However when Chosen One says "and that day, I vowed to find the man who killed my family", you see Master Tang walks past the Chosen One. (00:13:20)


Revealing mistake: When the Chosen One fights Betty in the water he gets knocked down. When he gets up you can see that it's not Steve Odenkerk but the guy who was in the original kung-fu movie they added people and audio to.


Betty: Go get some snacks. Perhaps a carbonated soda.
Ling: I hope they have Icees.
The Chosen One: I've chosen the large tub.
Wimp Lo: My nipples look like milk duds.
Master Tang: I've got some yellow liquid for your popcorn. And it's non-dairy.

Question: The DVD features what the actors are actually saying. What is the actual joke told by Betty (the owl/bungee cord line) when translated into English?

Answer: Nothing - that section of the movie was taken from the original "Tiger and Crane Fists," and so was never English to begin with.
