Kickin it Old Skool
In 1986, a freak break dancing accident landed Justin Schumacher in a coma. Now, 20 years later, he (Jamie Kennedy) is waking up to a new world and discovering that the more things change, the more he’s stayed the same. With the girl of his dreams (Maria Menounos) engaged to marry his grade-school nemesis (Michael Rosenbaum), and his parents drowning in the debt of his medical costs, Justin must rally his former squad, bust a move, and win back the girl of his dreams.
Hollywood takes an interesting premise and ruins it by childish, crude, profane, obscene and crass dialog. While there are some funny parts and the break dancing at times is interesting and fun, the sophomoric dialog inhibits “Kickin it Old Skool” from reaching any kind of critical acclaim in any category. I’m sitting all by myself in the theater wondering if word leaked out to the public about how bad this film is only to find myself laughing out loud once or twice. So in places it hits the mark, but kick this one off your list if you are looking to laugh a lot or be really entertained.
Due to the foul language and nudity, Dove cannot award its Dove Family-Approved Seal to “Kickin it Old Skool”.
