We all know the touching, coming-of-age film Boogie Nights revolves around a young man with a growth deformity finding success in a burgeoning industry. The stellar cast (which includes Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, John C. Reilly, Heather Graham, Don Cheadle, and Philip Seymour Hoffman) is at the top of their game, and everyone looks like they’re having a good time. (A real good time.)
But we at IFC can’t help but ask the age-old question: What if Boogie Nights had less sex and 100% more kicking? What would it look like as a ’70s kung fu movie? Well, rather than continue to leave that question unanswered, we decided to make it happen using audio from the classic grindhouse flick Return of the Kung Fu Dragon.
Watch the titans of the 1970s porn industry kick butt for a change below, and be sure to catch Boogie Nights this month on IFC.
