Kids from Shaolin (1984)

Summary: A fu family film !
... in every sense. Unlike many chop sockeys, this one isn't very violent, and is suitable for the whole family. Also, it concerns the rivalry between two neighbouring families. One has all sons, the other all daughters. One family is headed by a widower. Sounds like a wild version of the Brady Bunch ? Or Seven Brides for Seven Brothers ? Well, I'm sure the producers has at least seen these earlier stories. But this flick is pretty much an original.
It even features Jet Li singing, and dressed in drag.
All in all, great family fun, plenty of action and antics but, of course, not a lot of sense. Recommended.
