I went and watched a film that was so horrible it made me beg for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez in Gigli. Yeah can you believe a movie could be that bad? For years I thought that the worst movie ever had to be Gigli and there was nothing that could ever beat it, well then Jamie Kennedy (fresh off a Razzie worthy performance in the Son of the Mask) comes out with Kickin’ it Old School. Weak plot and casting the guy from Juwanna Mann (Miguel Nunez) means a horrible movie will follow.
At one time I liked Jamie Kennedy, when he was in Malibu’s Most Wanted he was funny, but I guess like a one hit wonder he is sinking and doing it faster than Britney Spears with no panties.
Kickin’ it Old School is a movie about Justin Schumacher (Jamie Kennedy) who is a young break dancer in the 80’s who hits his head and lands in a 20 years comma. Justin awakes in the year 2006 and finds the world has moved on without him, Justin wants to get his old team back together to win a break dancing competition to help his parents pay off their huge debt. In the process he hopes to win back his onetime girlfriend (Marie Menounos) from his arch rival Kip (Michael Rosenbaum).
Is it a coincidence that the movie features a kid in a comma and during the whole movie I wished I was in a comma? This movie is pretty weak, the plot is weak, acting is weak and over acted, and the jokes are force fed to you. What do the writers expect from the audience? I would rather watch one of the horrible movies written by two out of the six writers of scary movie, ok not really but it’s on the same level. If you like obvious stereotypical jokes about Asians and the 80’s then you might like 2 minutes of this movie. If you like stupid people falling down in an unfunny manner and hammer pants, you will enjoy another 2 minutes of this movie. All of that would be great if the movie was only 4 minutes long but it runs for 108 minutes which is 104 minutes to long.
You know when people say “All the funny parts were in the trailer” I would say that right now if there were funny parts in the trailer. The movie is in the ranks of anything with Larry the Cable Guy in it, yeah that bad!
People are talking a lot about how Jamie Kennedy has taken over as the new Pauly Shore and to that I have to say are you serious no one can be more annoying than the WEASSSSSSSSEL. I don’t think this is a good movie but at the same time I don’t think Jamie Kennedy has assumed the role Pauly Shore once held a strangle hold on (and I only say once held because he hasn’t made a movie in like 10 years). Oh wait he made one movie I saw on YouTube.com, watch the right hook Pauly!
So enough about this movie my suggestion is watch at your own risk, and even if you find a way to see it for free I still say watch at your own risk. If you are daring enough go see the website http://www.kickinitmovie.com/.
