Synopsis

A box set of Seventies spoof comedy. 'Kung Pow - Enter the Fist' is writer/director, and creator of 'thumbation', Steve Oedekerk's take on the martial art film genre. Using an exisiting Seventies Hong Kong film, adding new scenes, special effects and his own dialogue, Oedekerk's plays the 'Chosen One', a legendary warrior who has spent years wandering the country in search of Master Pain (aka Betty) to wreak revenge. In 'Dude, Where's My Car?' Jesse and Chester are two half-witted stoners who wake up one morning to find their car has gone missing and they cannot remember where they left it. The only clues are a matchbox cover from the Kitty Kat strip joint and a fridge full of munchies. They must now retrace their steps and soon both are in for the ride of their lives as they encounter alien chicks and killer ostriches whilst trying to score 'special treats' from their unhappy girlfriends. Whilst 'Austin Powers - International Man of Mystery' is Mike Myers first spoof of 'Matt Helm' and James Bond movies. In 1967, fashion photographer and spy Austin Powers (Myers) is on the verge of catching his arch-nemesis Dr Evil (also Myers) when the latter has himself cryogenically frozen. Powers follows suit, only to be revived thirty years later when Evil has emerged to threaten the world once more. Teamed with Vanessa Kensington (Elizabeth Hurley), the daughter of his original partner, Powers has to get over his culture shock in time to battle his old foe.
