When the Valley of Peace is threatened, lazy Po the panda discovers his destiny as the "chosen one" and trains to become a kung fu hero, but transforming the unsleek slacker into a brave warrior won't be easy. It's up to Master Shifu and the Furious Five -- Tigress, Crane, Mantis, Viper and Monkey -- to give it a try.

Despite it being an animated picture, Kung Fu Panda is the perfect vehicle for the vocalisms of Jack Black. Black plays the obese panda Po, who is chosen to be the Dragon Warrior. His selection does not bode well with many others. Kung Fu Panda is hilariously funny, with many quotable lines. If you like Black, you'll love this movie, because he performs his role to perfection. Dustin Hoffman and Ian McShane are good supporting characters as well; Hoffman especially is very good as Master Shifu, the miniature animal who trains Po. Of course, because it's an animated movie, the fight scenes tend to be a bit exaggerated, but the comedic dialogue is superb. Overall, it is a very funny, funny, funny movie.
