Foot Fist Way is one of those movies that gives me hope. I will explain that in a minute.  First the film itself, the best way to describe Foot Fist Way is that it would probably be a hit as a five minute or so You Tube clip.  Unfortunately the DVD I received took 82 minutes and then had an additional 20 mins on top of that, in Bonus Material.  This film was a college joke that lasted too long.  Having at the time only seen the trailers for Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder I had some excitement about watching this film.  To see Will Ferrell’s name on it also gave me some excitement.  Unfortunately the happiness did not last long.

The film is about Fred Simmons (Danny McBride) who is a sensei at a Tae Kwon Do dojo housed in a mini mall.  Upon the realization that his wife is having an affair he sets out to find the only thing he has left in his life, which says a lot, to meet his hero Chuck “The Truck” Wallace.  This journey was the excuse the writers needed to get Fred out of his comfort zone of his dojo and out into the real world where his stupidity could be exploited.  Once he does finally get to meet his hero he realizes what a jerk he really is and we are left with a flat ending.

This DVD does contain Bonus Materials but after watching the film I didn’t really have it in me to waste more time on them.

Now for my explanation about hope.  This film gave me hope as a writer that someday the stuff I write would be good enough to be bought and put up on the silver screen.  If these guys can do it, maybe even my 4-year-old could.  He can tell fart jokes too.

Film: 3.0

Audio: 6.0

Video: 6.0

Bonus Material: 3.0

Overall: 4.2
