100% on Rotten Tomatoes! Anyone else seen this Karate Kid 'where are they now' series? Follows the two main protagonists and their lives 34 years later. Unfortunately I got to see the first 2 episodes for free, now I'm hooked Rolling Eyes I will probably do the free Premium trial, power-watch it, then cancel (11.99/month!)

Worth a look for those who remember this film as kids in the 80s. 34 years Mad

I'll never get around to watching that ... so what are LaRusso and Johnny up to these days?

Strike first, strike hard

I heard that it's a straight role reversal, LaRusso is a DICK, and Johnny is a down at luck nice guy who changes everything around.

Johnny is down & out, divorced, and living in a crappy apartment drinking beer in his vest in front of the TV. Larusso is a self-made business man with a successful chain of car dealerships.

You're immediately pulling for Johnny when he decides to open the dojo. Looks like he's going to take in all the nerdy kids who get bullied, and turn them into 'somebodies'...No Mercy etc. Whereas now, LaRusso is the one with privileged kids who hang around with 'class bullies', and his daughter's BF is the lead bully in a group of kids that pick on Johnny's first pupil in episode 1. It's a bit of a role reversal thing.

Did Ali come back to LaRusso after going off and having the fling with the bartender?

I don't even remember that, KK2?

LaRusso isn't really a d1ck, he's just annoying & cheesy, like many stereotypical car salesmen. The role reversal bit is really a class/money thing, and the fact the bullies are associated with his kids.

I'm sure the bartender was played by Tom Cruise, they were doing all sorts of tricks and stuff, the bartenders Miyagi character committed suicide in the end I think

That's my viewing sorted then.

Wax on - wax off

Still makes me laugh. I'm sure there was a parent/kids jobs around the house conspiracy in there somewhere.

I did wonder what he was on about, then realised he was talking about Cocktail. But I couldn't be ar$ed to reply once the penny had dropped! Jim should have been busy watching proper films back then anyway, not that sh!te.

What's got Billy spooked?

Is that more ethical than just getting it off a torrent site?
