Product Description

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.

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.
A word of caution. DO NOT TRY BREAKING WOOD OR CEMENT BLOCKS.
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!

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.

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.

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!

I'll keep this short and too the point for you - this will be the ''1 inch punch'' of reviews.

I and everyone I've made watch this film love it!

Filmed in a 'fly on the wall' documentary style, like the office, you'll laugh and cringe at the same time as it captures the break down of Mr. Simmons: a Martial Arts instructor who, by the way he simultaneously bullies and shows off to the children in his Tae Kwon Do class, we can only assume has some rather deep rooted, inner inferiority complexes and issues going on. Don't worry though - he eventually rises up, digs deep, and overcomes them of course.

This film has some truly hysterical lines in it (the party scene in particular is just awesome) and I thoroughly laughed my foot fist butt off. I think you will too.

If you found this review helpful at all please mark it as so.

This is a very enjoyable and funny film. I wish I'd seen it before Eastbound and Down as Danny Mcbride is now so memorable as Kenny Powers it's hard not to see him as such. In this film he's a much nicer character(compared to powers) and it's his slutty wife and his hero movie star that play the crueller parts putting McBride through some problems.
This film is very low budget and won't be to everyones taste but ultimately i think its a very good even feelgood movie focusing on a man with a Tae Quan Doe studio and trying to be a role model for kids and adults alike.
