Enter the Fat Dragon

Sammo Hung is one of my heroes. This playlist is one of his innovative kung-fu comedies. It's always interesting when I recognize a word or kanji somehow due to it's adoption into Japanese. If you want to use a Chinese word that will be understood and get you erai points with a Japanese person, I suggest 無問題 which is pronounced moumontai and means "no problem". I love it! People know it because it was a title of a rare (in the sense of collaborations) Hong Kong/Japanese comedy movie that just so happened to have a Sammo Hung cameo.

Keep an eye out for the crazy foreigners acting like Chinese villains and vice-versa in Enter the Fat Dragon.
