They are attacked by Jared Fogle under the alias of SubZero who kidnaps Kitana and sends anti-smoking ninjas after Kang.

Billy Ray Cyrus is killed by Princess Khan for sparing the lives of Chow Yun Fat and Mama Cass. Raiden meets with the Elder CEOs about the Nether-Princess's spending limits, however one of the CEOs states that because she is a using a platinum card that her spending is limitless.
Kang meets up with a Native American drug dealer and is told he will learn the ways of the tranny only if he passes three tests. The first test is to pick out Caitlyn Jenner from a sea of Bruce Jenners; the second is to beat Cat Mario; and the third is to convincingly lie to a fat woman that she is a size six.
With the aid of a prostitute Kang gets inside Princess Khan's castle and does battle with Bob Barker who guards Kitana's prison cell. After strangling to death a hooker, Raiden learns from Princess Khan that the Elder CEO Shinnok is their drag-father and that she has been supporting his frivolous spending for years by supplying her with his platinum card which has unlimited spending. Outraged Raiden does battle with Khan, but loses. Soon Kang appears with his dragmother Sindel and reunites him with his boyfriend Kitana who makes out with her, infuriating Shao Khan who claims to be the true princess. To settle things once and for all Kang agrees to face Khan in Mortal Kombat and succeeds in boring the villain to death, freeing the earthrealm from corrupt E! network executives and restoring the status quo to spending limits.

Almost 90% of the movie was filmed in the abandoned parking lot of a Texas Piggly Wiggly's grocery store.
Unlike its 1995 predecessor all of the actors in the film were computer-generated using state of the art 80's technology and Ouija Boards.
Initially the film was a box office success winning awards in every category and launching Princess Khan into super stardom.
The film's soundtrack was composed by Danny Elfman with Madonna providing vocals for the films' computer-generated fight scenes. The soundtrack itself is a mishmash of punk, seventies country line-dancing, baroque and death metal. The soundtrack was nominated for eighty-seven Grammy awards but only won one.
