What might have escaped you while watching Kung Fu Hustle is that about 35% of the lines are in one language, and the rest are in another. This is a uniquely Chinese problem. The actors talking to each other in a scene aren’t necessarily speaking the same language. Yet, much like Han Solo and Chewbacca, they communicate just fine. Is this found anywhere else in nature? And by the way, the movie is MUCH funnier if you know Cantonese. They have different archetypes. One last thought: I hope Stephen Chow doesn’t come to America and start sucking like John Woo.
