FOOTBALL + KUNG FU = SURE FIRE HIT

I think we can all agree that this equation balances. But FOOTBALL + RIDICULOUS CGI(KUNG FU) = LESS OF A SURE FIRE HIT seems to be the rationale behind whomever has the distribution rights to Shaolin Soccer in the UK. It came out in Japan in 2002, and has only just poked its head out in the US. And they do not even like football there. Shaolin Soccer is a gem of a movie, that trancends its inital beezer concept to throw in a dishwasher full of other fun ideas. Annoyed by the way the leading lady always looks great, well have one with appalling skin. Want a musical number or two, why the hell not. Want to point out that the team Shaolin FC have to beat are the bad guys, well just call the Team Evil.

So FOOTBALL + RIDICULOUS CGI(KUNG FU) + SIGHT GAGS(NOSE PICKING + MUSICAL NUMBERS) = BEST MOVIE EVAH.

Okay this equation might not balance but as you walk out to the strains of the Bus Stop (featuring Carl Douglas) version of Kung Fu Fighting, you start to believe it.
