Generic, shallow kung-fu trope factory

The movie was fine, but not anything worth seeking out. The characters were shallow and their interactions are heavy handed. The writing heavily leans on cultural memes and 4th wall winks - "Is this the part of the movie where we have a training montage?" Followed by a montage. The humor for adults is weak and the humor for kids is generic.

Really, Common Sense?

This is one of the best movies ever. Common sense warns us that there’s nudity in the film, but nothing other than Sumo’s but cheeks.
