I hate Jamie Kennedy, ever since Malibu's Most Wanted. It is one of the few movies I have actually shut off

The only reason I enjoyed the movie is that it happens to be one of the most mean-spirited PG-13 films ever created.

Why exactly is that a positive point for the movie? Kicking an old war veteran in the nuts is mean spirited, but it's not something I want to see.

I watched this the other day. I liked it quite a bit. I thought it was funny as hell.

Spoiler:
Alan Ruck's appearance as "Dr. Frye" and the mention of "paying for the Ferrari" had me cracking up.

I'm far more offended that it's about a team of break dancers. Fuck's sake!

I enjoyed parts of it, but the breakdancing segments were a damn bore.

Cause I like it when movies tend to not go the PC-route.

Re: Kickin It Old Skool

Was Frye his last name from FB? If so the joke about a pricey Ferrari was better than I thought!

Anyway, awtched this for free over the weekend on Netflix Watch Now. The first half hour was pretty funny, but then it got bad. I almost wanted to turn it off - not because it was horrible, but rather just dry. Oddly, and I do mean odd, the last half hour went by quick. I suppose I was expecting more of a segment showing the outcome of the parking lot showdown (gross by the way), but they didn't touch on that.

Also, if Michael Rosenbaum quit Smallville to do more projects like this I think he should stayed on as Lex Luthor since it gave the opportunity for more range in acting. However, I did think, "What, like three?" and the deliver was good.

Malibu's Most Wanted was better, but this was alright.
