Not for a lack of trying, but the hapless Oedekerk manages to make not one iota of it worthy of one good laugh. There’s nothing wrong with a good stupid comedy, but it’s important that the laughs are there. Aside from a few mild smirks at some of the more squishy sound effects, I simply couldn’t find any laughs in this one. Sitting through Kung Pow is a lot like babysitting a hyperactive child who fancies himself the next Carrot Top. You'll be amazed by his non-stop and frantic efforts to get your attention, you may even smile and chuckle politely out of sheer decency, but ultimately you'll either fling the child across the room or simply run screaming from the room.
So once you’re done watching the film with its four separate soundtracks, you can dig into the more traditional features. First up is a disposable Behind-the-Scenes featurette, which runs about 5 minutes and is your basic EPK junk. There are three short features that delve into the special effects: Visual Effects: Before and After Shots gives us some of the original footage, cross-cut with Oedekerk’s FX work, and finally the end product. At the very least, the technical aspects of this flick are something to check out. Next up is Cow Visual Effects: Before & After Shots, which covers the same ground as the previous feature, only this time the focus is on that interminable Matrix-ish cow battle. The third FX piece is a Pre-Visualization Cow Animatic, basically a computer animated version of that damn cow fight. Enough with the cow! You’ll also find a collection of 14 deleted scenes, a few extended scenes with alternate dialogue, a series of TV promos and the theatrical trailer, a photo gallery, and a few silly Easter Eggs that feature screaming tongues, screaming thumbs, and a ‘dancing penis’ gag that may be funnier than anything in the entire movie.
