I enjoyed this movie only because I live near Concord, NC where the film is set and I am currently taking martial arts. I found the mockery of the taekwondo classes a little funny and there were a couple of laughs in there, but you see them in the trailer. If you really like Danny McBride then you will like this movie, otherwise there's probably not much else there for you.

Danny McBride did this movie before he did Eastbound & Down. Both involve a character on the trashy, obnoxious, athletically employed side. Eastbound & Down's variation is that the guy once hit it big. This character will never hit it big. There is another variation. The marital problem here is dead serious. He is married to a woman who looks and acts like a two bit hooker. I thought he did a marvelous, very credible job of playing a guy who keeps deluding himself about the woman he married until he no longer can. That was the best part of the movie for me. It showed another side to McBride's talent. Yes, he does play some aspects of it for laughs but he really shows his acting chops here as the cuckold. All this said, one viewing was enough. Danny McBride is a terrific talent and I am looking forward to seeing a lot more of him.

First of all I love all the people who take this type of movie so personal, Obviously you "Dojo" is not ran like this. This is why it is a comedy and why you need to get a sense of humor. If this was like and typical dojo this wouldn't b a movie because its boring and no one wants to hear about how u were picked on growing up and now u do karate. This is a funny ass movie making fun of the "Overachiever" dork that everyone in the world has met at least once, Enjoy it

First off, as of the date of this review, Sunday, October 26th, 2008, this movie has been out on DVD for over a month. I had to purchase it elsewhere than from Amazon because it is still showing it as unavailable. So my first question is, "What's up with that Amazon?"

This is not a slick well thought out comedy performed by comedic geniuses such as; Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Adam Sandler, etc. What it is, is a low budget extremely disturbing comedy featuring a relatively unknown actor who seems to nail this part down pat.

Having a background in the legitimate martial art of Tae Kwon Do, and not the McDojo version which seems to be so prevalent today, I found this movie to be disturbingly funny, not so much because of the actors comedic ability, but the fact that I have actually seen this kind of instructor before, and not only once, but many times all over the country. And that really is a disturbingly scary thought.

To say that this movie is destined to be a cult classic may be a bit much for the mainstream movie audience to understand, but I can definitely see that coming true in the years to come.

The main character (played by Danny McBride) is an all too typical McDojo instructor whose main martial art that he teaches just happens to be Tae Kwon Do, although you could pretty much substitute any martial art in there and get pretty much the same results. His teaching style and ability are so absurdly funny that I actually had to watch this movie immediately after the first time because I was laughing so hard that I actually missed quite a bit of dialogue the first time. Which by the way only made me laugh even harder the second time when I could hear what I had missed the first time through.

Every now and then my wife and I like to grab the most random video at Blockbuster we can find and we hit the jackpot with this one! Danny McBride plays a Tae Kwon Do instructor going through somewhat of a midlife crisis. Sounds simple, but it was three times funnier than Napoleon Dynamite and all the no name actors were awesome! You will laugh literally every one to two minutes. I have systematically made everyone of my friends watch this.

If you have ever spent much time in a martial arts program you will certainly find some humorous moments in this. It is a pretty decent spoof done in a sort of documentary style. Not the greatest martial arts flick ever but alot of inside joke moments from the dojo.

This relatively new martial arts movie is not just for martial arts aficionados.
It is done with a sense of humor, partly biting, partly compassionate, giving those of
us who don't live in the world of kicks and strikes but who are concerned with
the real human dilemma of how we manage our lives a thoughtful film. We may talk integrity, sincerity,
and restraint -- but all too often we live to an altogether code. The acting
is gently real, the editing is sometimes a bit choppy, and there is a powerful
and moving storyline.
Whether you have ever wanted to break boards with the edge of your hand, I
still can recommend this movie to anyone who cares about real people living
real lives.
