Sing (Stephen Chow) and Bone (Lam Chi-chung) are wannabe kung fu masters and petty thieves who dream of joining Shanghai's toughest gang, the Axes. In the meantime, they pretend to be members while harassing residents of Pig Sty Alley, who beat both men to a pulp.
The gang's leader, Sum (Danny Chan) hears about the impersonation and sends someone to punish the two; instead, the Axes are humiliated by Pig Sty Alley's inhabitants. With Sum's ego scarred he offers Bone and Sing membership to his gang, provided the duo can kill just one resident of Pig Sty Alley.
Kung Fu Hustle was both a critical and commercial success, earning almost $100 million internationally -- 5 times its $20 million budget. The picture was nominated for a Golden Globe and an MTV Movie Award.
