People, we're talking THE KARATE KID here and not CASABLANCA. I love TKK but.... In fact this thread has made me want to go back and watch all four. As for some saying kids should already want to watch TKK, yeah right. That's like saying people in their 60s should want to listen to Master P. As someone "young", I find it a lot easier to get my younger friends to try classic films than older ones. It's my older friends/family who are hard headed in their ways and refuse to try anything new and instead just watching stuff they've been watching the past thirty years. With my younger friends, they'll at least try something different.
