Release Notes


Official Website


It may not look like much, but the low-budget tae kwon do comedy The Foot Fist Way is one of the funniest DIY flicks in years, thanks to the droll wit of writer-director Jody Hill and star Danny McBride. You can thank Will Ferrell for the chance to see it on the big screen: After rumors spread that Ferrell was a big fan of the still-unreleased indie, Paramount Vantage ponied up the cash for the film to get an official release.
