    Anything that happened in the Mortal Kombat sequel. Which now has me thinking of bad video game movies, in which case Super Mario Brothers keeps popping into my head.

    How about when Mongo knocked out the horse in Blazing Saddles?
    Poor horse never had a chance!

    Any movie where the crime boss/villian is also a world-class martial artist.
    I also had a hard time believing that Carl Weathers couldn't go right through Craig T. Nelson in Action Jackson.

    Carl Weathers is a foul-smelling joke.

    Maybe so, but there's no way he should have even broken a sweat kicking Craig T. Nelson's ass.

    Great point. I hate Craig T. Nelson equally, if not more. Probably more.

    I don't hate either one of them, but come on, Craig T. Nelson even getting in as many licks as he did was completely unbelievable. Ditto for the guy who played the local punk/crime boss in Walking Tall when he fought The Rock.

    I do. And I can't argue with you about Coach.

    Sirs, Madames,

    James Caan ended up being an upper dan karate-ka in the shotokan style. During Godfather, I dunno if he trained.

    The all-time worst: The Prize Fighter, with Tim Conway and Don Knotts.


    YHS, etc

    In "Ned Kelly", the saga of the famed Australian bandit, Mick Jagger (!) in the title role fought a bare-knuckles bout against some local champeen of the outback. Each was stripped to the waist.The local hero was your basic overmuscled stunt man-roustabout. Mick, of course, resembled a bunch of coathangers wired together. The audience began laughing at the weigh-in and didn't stop through the amazing (not in a good way) choreography of Jagger's victory.
