The film was produced by Gary Sanchez Productions that picked up distribution rights to the film and hoped for it to achieve a Napoleon Dynamite -like success. He styles himself a big shot, driving a Ferrari and extolling the virtues of Taekwondo to potential new students, but loses his confidence after he discovers that his wife, Suzie Mary Jane Bostic gave her boss a handjob after a drunken office party. In order to restore his confidence, he attends a martial arts expo. He meets his idol, B movie action star Chuck "the Truck" Wallace Ben Best , who in reality turns out to be a dirty and drunken mess.

Jody Hill on ‘The Foot Fist Way,’ Tae Kwon Do, and Paying Off Your Credit-Card Debt
Jody Hill right on the set. Courtesy of Paramount Vantage. Despite its shoestring budget and limited resources, this hilarious flick about a small town Tae Kwon Do instructor the co-writer and comedy star of tomorrow Danny McBride whose delusions of grandeur collide with his pathetic personal life is an unholy cross between Bottle Rocket , Napoleon Dynamite , and Talladega Nights — only, like, funnier. Luckily, it eventually found its way to the eyeballs of kindred spirits Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, who snatched it up and are now releasing it today! Vulture spoke to director Jody Hill via phone in New Mexico, where he is busy shooting his next film.
The hero of "The Foot Fist Way" is loathsome and reprehensible and isn't a villain in any traditional sense. Five minutes spent in his company and my jaw was dropping. Ten minutes and I realized he existed outside any conventional notion of proper behavior. Children should not be allowed within a mile of this film, but it will appeal to "Jackass" fans and other devotees of the joyously ignorant.
