TAOISM DRUNKARD (1984)
Kung fu comedy flick featuring some of the characters from SHAOLIN DRUNKARD. I actually recall liking this movie a lot when I was younger. I must have been doing a lot of psychedelic drugs at the time because this movie makes absolutely no sense and just seems like an insane Chinese person decided to make a movie. There is the great watermelon monster or in some prints he's called the banana monster(I guess cuz he tries to eat the banana in your pants) and there's this buck-toothed idiot who drives around in a big shoe with a mouse face on it. For some reason he's looking for some virgin boys(cherry boys as he calls them) and this leads to some totally inappropriate gazing at little boys penises. There's also a fat lady who falls down a lot and an old grandma who's clearly played by a man or the world's manliest old Asian lady. The coolest character though is our bad guy who kicks lots of ass and I think he's supposed to be the devil. Also he seems like he belongs in a more serious chop-socky flick. Also listen for Howard Jones' New Song that shows up for one stupid scene where some break-dance-kung fu is going on. While being drunk might help you get through this movie I'm not sure that would be enough of a mind-altered state for the average viewer. There's supposedly another film in this sort-of trilogy called THE MIRACLE FIGHTERS from 1982 but I can't imagine it's anywhere near as insane as this one.
