Shaolin Soccer

113 minutes

This wacky Hong Kong comedy (2001) ran 111 minutes in its initial Asian release, but Miramax Films deleted 24 of them and rewrote the subtitles for its domestic rollout. I haven't seen the original and can't speak Mandarin, so I can't comment on the changes, but what's left is a spirited crowd-pleaser about a washed-up soccer coach (Man Tat Ng) and a kung fu master (Stephen Chow, who also directs) assembling a team of losers to challenge the formidable Evil Team in a million-dollar tournament.
