Don't miss CHANNEL Z, Denver's home for the best Neo-Cult and Genre Classics on the Big Screen every month at the Alamo Drafthouse Littleton, the first and last Saturday of the month at 10pm. Hosted and curated by Keith Garcia & Theresa Mercado.

One of Hong Kong's top screen comics, Stephen Chow, co-wrote, co-directed, and headlines this three-way blend of sports, action, and humor. Sing (Stephen Chow) is a modern-day Shaolin monk who has become a master of traditional fighting skills, and is renowned for his "leg of steel." However, these days there isn't much call for a Shaolin warrior, and Sing and his fellow monks earn their keep working menial jobs until a soccer coach gets the bright idea of translating Sing's talent for kicking to the soccer field. Sing becomes the lynchpin of a team playing in a tournament that could net them a $1 million purse, but even with Sing's footwork, beating the steroid-fueled champions will be no easy task.

I met Ms. Hedren in the lounge of Elway's on the first floor of Denver's Ritz-Carlton. We talked about her new pursuits and her "second career" in the movies, though we started as most any conversation with Tippi Hedren must: with her time with Hitchcock.
