The Foot Fist Way

Jody Hill (2006)

15 Certificate


Our Score
There are some laugh-out-loud moments in this mock documentary from first-time director Jody Hill, but they are few and far between. Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder) is at least an amusing lead as a small-town tae kwon do teacher, who has to battle back from the double whammy of his wife's infidelity and the discovery that his idol, a martial arts movie superstar, has feet of clay. But, by and large, this low-budget nonsense is too tepid as comedy and too toothless as satire. Will Ferrell "presents" the film, though quite why is something of a puzzle. Perhaps if he'd contributed a cameo role as well it would have boosted the star wattage of this rather patchy effort.


A small town tae kwondo teacher claims to be a master martial artist, but lacks the genuine skills to back this up. Plunged into misery when his wife leaves him, he sees a chance to turn his life around by seeking the aid of his action movie star hero. Comedy, starring Danny McBride, Ben Best and Mary Jane Bostic.
