Perhaps you need a special mindset for this movie. When I went to see this with my wife after the first 5 minutes I thought: "Oh dear ... what have you done to her ..." But when we were back home, we pre-ordered the DVD right away, and I guess up today my wife has seen it more often than me. The fighting scenes are hilarious, over the top and tremendous fun, completely ignoring reality. Gags and comical scenes are deliberately eploited to the extreme - and beyond. Fun! Great fun!
