Happy-Making Movie

Shaolin Soccer.
It is sublimely ridiculous. I can’t even find words to describe it.
Something like Farrelly Brothers meeets Kung Fu Bollywood, I guess.

“buoyant goof…”
“lunatic whirl…”
“like live action anime…”
“has a way of lifting spirits…”
“an infectious knockabout…”
“silliest, sweetest…films in recent memory”
“empty-headed treat…”
