Enter the Fat Dragon (Chinese: 肥龍過江) is a 1978 Hong Kong martial arts film directed by Sammo Hung, who also starred in the film. The film is mostly a parody of the Bruce Lee's 1972 film Way of the Dragon, and a satire of the Bruceploitation phenomenon of the '70s.

The film had a belated video release in the United States, eventually coming out in 1999 after director and actor Sammo Hung became an unexpected success with his American TV series Martial Law.

Plot[edit]

Ah Lung is a pig farmer and a devoted Bruce Lee fan who is anxious to follow in Lee's footsteps, but only ridiculed for his attempts. He is sent to the city to earn a living working at his uncle's restaurant, but when he arrives, he finds a gang of thugs causing trouble in the restaurant. He takes the chance to prove himself and attacks the thugs, defeating them and saving the restaurant. Soon, he becomes a waiter, and discovers a plot by the same thugs to kidnap a woman he works with. Eventually, he defeats the thugs once again and saves the day.
