Shaolin Soccer

Director: Stephen Chow Run Time: 113 min. Format: Digital Projection Release Year: 2001

Starring: Ng Man-tat, Stephen Chow, Wong Yat-fei, Zhao Wei

Hong Kong comedy ace Stephen Chow brings his inimitable style to the pitch in this spectacularly silly and wildly entertaining sports movie spoof. Chow plays a Shaolin monk who is trying to find a way to spread the word about kung fu and becomes convinced that the best way is to become a soccer star – despite having no experience with the game.

The 2pm show will be the English-dubbed short version; the 9:15pm will be the original version in Cantonese with English Subtitles.
