      Nicolas P Pretty terrible. The writing...the acting, ouch it is bad. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/02/24 Full Review M M Stoner movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review James D Have to be a fan of Danny McBride's humor to enjoy this meandering martial arts movie. This is the genesis of what he does with a Clerks feel to it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Some of the jokes fall a little flat but it's got a great cast and clever ideas. Some of the jokes were great. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/08/22 Full Review Audience Member This movie would never be made in 2021. It is likely to offend almost everyone and is cringey but bold. I liked it Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member 3.7 .

      Ty Burr Boston Globe Rated: 2/4 Nov 24, 2011 Full Review Hank Sartin Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Stephen Garrett Time Out Rated: 3/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Ed Travis Hollywood Jesus The Foot Fist Way has a chance at real cult comedy status. But I would also say that it isn't as incredibly unique as I would have hoped. But as I found myself laughing at the absurdity and the story, I realized I was really engaged by McBride... Apr 10, 2020 Full Review Michael Dequina TheMovieReport.com Milks the character and his foibles for all the laughs he's worth--which prove to be plenty. Rated: 3/4 Jun 4, 2012 Full Review Austin Kennedy Sin Magazine Being a filmmaker myself, I have an affection for directors who gather all the money they can and just go for it. But the humor is not consistent enough for me to fully recommend this. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 24, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews
