These two goof around a lot. Mr. Oederkerk starts of by saying something like ‘Look what we did?!? We ruined it!’. So the rest of the track is pretty much the same. Actually, some parts are funnier than the movie. Amid all that goofing off, something was bound to be funny, right? They go into the normal commentary routine: talking about shots, how they were done, what shots were Mr. Oederkerk and what shots were Jimmy Wang Yu (the actor Mr. Oederkerk replaced), why they did it, how nice everybody was to work with. You do get some nice bits of info, though: Mr. Oederkerk watched about a hundred or so flicks before choosing this one. A big reason he chose this one was for the scene where Betty gets hits in the crotch from his training. You also learn that, even in the original movie, the pyramid things in Betty’s chest aren’t really explained. Anyway, this track is okay. If you liked the movie, you’ll like the track. Nothing else to say.

Yeah, I liked this track. I heard bad things about it, but I guess the people who reviewed it didn't like the movie. There are moments where Steve does talk in weird funny voices like out of nowhere. They also mentioned how the movie got bad reviews by critics who didn't know this film was intentionally bad in terms of bad lighting.

They mention that the actors wrote their own dialogue, filming in Fox Studios Baja which is where they filmed Titanic, the scene where the Chosen One talks to Mu Shu Fasa was filmed in Steve's back garden with a blow dryer and a light, very home made.

They point out differences between the original footage and new footage. I really enjoyed this track. To like this track, you have to have enjoyed this film. It is stupid and not everyone is going to like it, but I thought it was fun.

Will Kung Pow 2 be made? Probably not. It's been 12 years.
