A distressingly good moleitau, equal parts dick-stomping humor and genuine emotion. To the uninitiated, the Buddhist plot and modern cultural subtext make the film even more nonsensical than it was probably meant to be, which also makes it better than it probably is.

It can be hard to make sense of what's going on at times, and the comedy is too broad for me, but it's still entertainingly ridiculous.

Very fun and very brainless comedy Chinese style. The best film based on monkey king myth for sure, and possibly best wuxia comedy. Stephen Chow is in his top form, and supporting cast is great too.
