DRUNKEN WU TANG - 4 Slimes
Not Rated
Copyright 1997 Hong Kong Connection. (I believe the film was made in the early 80's.)
Reviewed by Andrew Borntreger on 'a long time ago'

The Characters:  

  • (Work with me here, there were NO credits)
  • Cha Le and Jun - Virgin boy who is becoming a monk, she is the girlfriend who won't give it up.
  • Old Devil - Powerful evil spirit, he has this cannonball which spits out mini cannonballs. Rat Face and Cha Le finally defeat him.
  • Rat Face - Alcoholic with a face like some rodent, he uses very powerful Kung Fu though.
  • Granny - Cha Le's grandmother, she is a powerful martial arts witch. I think the actor was a man. Killed by Princess.
  • The Watermelon Monster - This thing is a riot! It's a giant toothed cannonball!
  • Princess - Cult leader, very pretty and her sash is deadly. Ends up enslaved to Old Devil and killed by Cha Le.
  • Fat Chick and Shining Knight - Princess' cultists, Fat Chick has this weird "antenna" hair style.

Buy It!

The Plot: 

I was entirely unprepared for this movie, it is a confusing but hilarious roller coaster of Kung Fu mayhem! Words can hardly describe the number of crazy kicks, punches, and special weapons you are treated to. And now for the equally absurd plot. Rat Face is tasked with finding a virgin male born on the 15th of August to perform a temple ritual. Cha Le (a virgin born on the 15th of August) is learning the art of being a martial arts using witch from his manly grandmother. He must retrieve the "secret document" from a hidden room, reaching it involves many dangers, and The Watermelon Monster guards the script. Princess and her cult often collect money from people, they can be very violent about not contributing. Old Devil wants the "secret document" to gain more power or something. The situation comes to a head at the temple ceremony where Rat Face and Cha Le must battle Old Devil. Confused? Watching it won't help - but you will be laughing and asking, "What just happened?" over and over (keep the remote handy for rewind). Never in my life have I seen so many people being pulled or suspended by wires, or stuffed dummies being thrown against walls, etc... ...and The Watermelon Monster, who in the heck thought this thing up? You really have to see this movie my friends, even if you don't like fu flicks.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Kung Fu defies all laws of physics, Einstein knew E=whatever the Shaolin monks decide.
  • Paper is a terrific insulator against fire.
  • Fat women fight by spinning or falling on you.
  • Asian girls say, "I want to cuddle." instead of, "Hump my brains out." but the result is the same.
  • Ladies: don't have sex in your deceased husband's tomb with the new boyfriend.
  • Getting a wine gourd jammed up your ass hurts.
  • Wearing a penis suit does not increase your fighting prowess and is likely to result in bodily harm.
  • Kung Fu requires ventriloquism.
  • People need their teeth in the afterlife.
  • Alcoholics never make it as wine tasters.
  • The Devil is susceptible to being smacked with 4X4's. (As in a piece of wood.)

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 5 mins - What is this? Some strange wicker bumper car being driven by a drunken rat man?
  • 9 mins - I think granny is a man BABY!
  • 13 mins - What in the world is that thing? (The Watermelon Monster.)
  • 15 mins - He painted hairs on his what? Nevermind...
  • 21 mins - That corpse just slapped the guy's behind!
  • 25 mins - That's a darn big sword.
  • 43 mins - We get the idea, she's communing with the dead, get on with it.
  • 54 mins - RANDOM ACT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST A CHICKEN!
  • 76 mins - They sure like to suspend the actors on wires in this movie.

Yeah I think this movie kinda sucks. I think I saw this when I was a kid. But I liked "The Crippled Masters" cool flick.

I've seen this on the big screen twice and would see it over and over, it is so wierd its laughable. I believe you can find it under the original title "Taoism Drunkard" Drunken WuTang is the home video release name for the US, obviously cashing in on the Wu Tang Clan popularity.

Im having enormous difficulty finding this film. :(
I thought I found the one with the watermelon monster, but it turned out to be "shaolin drunkard" :(
Please email me if you have this movie, or know where to find it, Im about ready to give up.
Taoism drunkard is what the movie is called on www.imdb.com
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085628/
BUT links to amazon go to either shaolin drunkard or drunken arts, crippled fists

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085628/sales
BEWARE AS BOTH THESE MOVIES ARE NOT DRUNKEN WUTANG
I have bought both, and though shaolin drunkard is pretty damn good....drunken arts crippled fists is just awful.


Joe, I made the same mistake and ended up seeing Shaolin Drunkard too. I definitely enjoyed it. The movie here is Taoism Drunkard as Inframan says, which I will also check out.

Just picked this up on DVD, its part of the The Martial Arts Essentials: The Films of Yuen Wo Ping , 6 movies for $15 over at Best Buy. Decent quality video for the price, the other films are quality old school.

   Thanks to this site, this movie was the first bad movie I had ever watched, I watched it with my friends.  THIS was the movie that made us fans of bad movies ever since, and we continue to watch them now.  So for anyone out there who's new, this is a great place to start.
   I love the ending battle, you can tell the writers just gave up on it and settled for mondo destruction of everything on the set sheerly because they threw up their hands and said "whatever."  At that time, they threw all logic out the window.  Chaos! And hilarious! Thumbup
   And yes, the gourd up the ass looked like it really hurt.  What's funniest, though, is the monster--in the movie it's actually called a "banana" monster, and yes, I DO mean it in that way.  It only attacks men, apparently.  Watch Cha Le's early encounter with it and you'll see what I mean!

Rat Face and Granny are played by the same guy, check the pics. THere's a scene where the two interact notice how it never show both of thier faces at the same time.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
