    I can't believe I'm saying this, but this actually looks pretty cool.

    Can one of the mods move this to Anything Goes?

    That actually didn't look terrible. And Simmons will now have more quotes to use for the next 25 years.

    I wouldn't watch it, but it looked better than I expected.

    I thought it would be horrible. But I think it looks pretty good and will probably be a pretty big hit.

    I also think it's funny that Jaden Smith's name is before Chan's on the poster.

    It should be called Kung Fu Kid.

    Liked the last little nod to the original with Chan trying to catch the fly with the chopsticks and using a flyswatter instead to the tune of "You're the Best Around".

    Otherwise, it looked so-so. Maybe I'll see it as a matinee, but I'm not dropping $9 for it.

    Jackie Chan is in it?

    I'm out.

    I guess he's too young to have a love interest so we won't have an Ali with an i. They should also have gotten Zabka in a cameo, perhaps as an ex-pat in China running a small dojo under the Cobra Kai flag.

    Well, that said the plot was him developing a crush on the girl at school. So he does have a "love" interest, which is what makes the bully give him shit.

    It looks like there's a bit of a love interest. I looked this up last night - Smith is only a year younger in this than Macchio was in the original KK.

    When your dad is a producer, that will happen.
