TFR 63: No English Necessary

Why are American audiences so averted to subtitles?

That’s a question we ask this week, as we get deep into Stephen Chow’s hilarious 2004 hit Kung Fu Hustle. We take a hard look at the difference between american and foreign audiences, how foreign films get marketed over here, audience reactions to unadvertised subtitles, and most importantly how funny it is when Kung Fu meets Looney Tunes.
