Spies On DVD Today: Balls of Fury
Yes, this is a spy movie. And it's out today. You may remember the ads last summer with Christopher Walken doing an amusing Fu Manchu act and a guy getting hit in the balls a lot. (With balls.) Well, that pretty much sums up the movie, but it does gloss over two important points: 1. The ping-pong story is grafted onto an Enter the Dragon-style espionage plot, and 2. The movie is actually pretty funny, as long as you're not expecting too much. George Lopez plays the 007-wannabe professional spy who handles the amateur.
