Product Description

Comedy starring Danny R McBride as Fred Simmons, an inept but extremely arrogant Tae Kwon Do instructor in a small town who fancies himself as an action hero in the vein of his idol, B-movie martial arts star Chuck 'The Truck' Wallace (Ben Best). When he finds out that his wife Suzie (Mary Jane Bostic) is having an affair with her boss, Fred suffers a major confidence crisis, and embarks on a pilgrimage with his best friend Mike (Jody Hill) to a Tae Kwon Do convention to see his hero in person.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remarkably accurate parody of TKD! 22 April 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a TKD gold medallist I had to see this movie. My instructors included an ex-convict, an ex-marine (discharged for beating up a military boxing instructor)... to name but a few...
This movie is made in the style of a documentary and is painfully true to life and therefore embarrassing.
The 'hero' drives an old red Ferrari 308 GTS and his buxom, blonde trophy wife could only be described as a lady whose nature rhymes with 'hut' and is an anagram of 'luts'.
She sleeps with everyone - much to our hero's dismay.
Chapters are titled as the 'tenets' of TKD: self-control, perseverance, indomitable spirit etc.
It's great entertainment.
Doing so has given me arthritis in both hands.
The human body is not designed for such things!
REMEMBER: it's a just movie; do not try this at home!
JP :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Best comedy of 2008? 9 Jan 2009
By Rambleast Reviews TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I saw this sometime after seeing Danny McBride in Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder last summer, and while both of those movies fell far short of their great potential (save for Downey Jr., not a bad word to say), this indie picture proves every bit as hilarious as you'd expect it to be.

Another in along line of comedies about idiots who takes themselves very seriously, The Foot Fist Way follows McBride's Fred Simmons - in a style not unlike docu-drama - as his marriage falls apart and his biggest hero becomes a rival. It's the little details that stand out though over the plot; line readings, awkward acting, all the things that made Napoleon Dynamite such a treat a few years back.

You'll enjoy the film on first watching, moreso on the second, and by the third you'll have already started recommending to friends and quoting dialogue. Ignore the hilarious and completely irrelevant other review and give it a go, it deserves to be seen by you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Alan Partridge: Combat Master 25 Oct 2013
This is a film set firmly in excruciation; the hero endures the slings and arrows of misfortune in just about every part of his life; we have not seen suffering of this order since Basil Fawlty. Danny McBride plays Fred Simmons, Taekwondo instructor, faultlessly as he mismanages his marriage, deals with his wife's infidelity, encounters the reality of his hero, and behaves wrongly on any level with his loyal students. Some viewers will find it amusing (Simmons is a walking disaster of ineptitude), but I found it very sad indeed (he is also fundamentally a decent bloke albeit dumb as a stump). Not light watching, and I am not surprised a lot of my fellow reviewers were not impressed.

It has some elements of the the martial arts world down pat.

Love Danny McBride but this was just rubbish. It wasn't funny from the start and didn't get any better as it went on.

4.0 out of 5 stars A deadly serious killing system 1 May 2009
It's important to understand that this is not the style of a typical Will Ferrell-esque comedy, though the marketing would love you to believe otherwise! Don't go into this if you're wanting Anchorman, in the same way you wouldn't go into Goodfellas if you wanted Die Hard.

The film itself revolves around a self-absorbed Tae Kwan Do instructor, Fred Simmons, played to perfection by Danny McBride in the role that brought him to Hollywood's attention, during the period that his life seems to be collapsing around him. His wife is repeatedly unfaithful, he makes awkward advances on his students, and he works himself into a near-religious fervour over his devotion to his martial arts hero, Chuck 'The Truck' Wallace, whilst all the time Fred remains painfully oblivious to his own self-importance.

There are some classic moments, and as I mentioned previously McBride's performance is excellent. The fly-on-the-wall shooting adds a great deal of realism to the film, and the rough edges are forgiveable for such a low-budget movie. The film does suffer slightly in other respects - in particular, due to the film being centred solely on Simmons, other characters that are along for most of the narrative remain underdeveloped by the end.

Ultimately though, this is Fred Simmons' story, and it is very well told!

Its a documentary style film that is a tad short on laughs but is an interesting viewing on the humble beginnings of his career.

3.0 out of 5 stars Real side of Martial Arts
Spoof exposure of martial arts, where everything is money driven. The scary thing is I know people that are actually like this. Low budget but makes the point well.
