The comic parody of the Hong Kong action cinema was a sight to behold with all the hilarious fighting scenes and Steve’s remarkable performance.

That fighting scene of Chosen one and the cow was one of the most hilarious part of the movie which makes viewers laugh even now.

Steve, however is not still sure what the plot will consist of but considering that its Steve we are talking about, he will be sure to make it a movie to remember.
Fans are however concerned about the role that Oedekek is going to play. In the first movie, he was the director as well as the actor but now we might all agree that he is in no shape to play in the sequel if it’s anything like the old one. The question still remains.
