    I hope this is an appropriate place to post this
    My brother told me he saw an old 1984 print ofThe Karate Kid at midnight last night. So naturally, I went to imdb.com to learn some facts about the movie, and I found that Raplh Macchio was born in 1961! Man, I thought he was much, much younger! This one beats that fact that Matt Broderick and MJ Fox are both in their early forties. This means that Ralph was about 22 when he shot the first movie. That can't be right.
    Are there any other "whoa, s/he's grown up"-isms you guys would like to talk about?

    Yeah, I can't believe The Karate Kid is that old!! This happens to me with people that are younger than myself. I'm 26, and I recall being shocked when I learned that Macaulay Culkin is 22 this year! [​IMG]
    Dear God! He's only 4 years younger than me! He seemed so young in the first Home Alone movie! Then again, that was 12 years ago, but it seems like yesterday! [​IMG]

    Ralph Macchio has always looked younger than he was in those movies, I even remember some remarks made to that effect.
