Robert's Review

In 1985, 12-year old Justin Schumacher (Jamie Kennedy) and his break dancing crew, the Funky Fresh Boyz, were having a dance-off with a rival crew at the school talent show. It was about more than just winning the match for Justin; he also wanted to win the heart of his dream girl Jennifer Stone (Maria Menounos) who the rival crew leader was also after. This led Justin to try a dangerous new break dancing move to win the dance-off, one that backfired and caused him to fall offstage and land on his head… putting him into a coma. 20 years later, he finally awakes from his coma to find that many things have changed in the world. He missed out on so much and his poor parents are about to loose their house, having spent everything they had on his 20 years of medical bills. Justin soon reconnects with his old friends and with Jennifer, who happens to be engaged to his childhood rival. But as fortune would have it, his rival is a TV host for a new dancing show that's similar to American Idol for dancers. The cash prize for winning would allow Justin to pay back his parents for all the medical bills and save their house… so he decides to get the Funky Fresh Boyz back together and win the competition.

"Kickin' It Old Skool" is a very refreshing and very funny movie. I was totally surprised and laughed like crazy the entire movie. It's chock-full of good old 80's nostalgia and it has some fantastic jokes that just had me and the rest of the audience rolling on the floor almost. There are many fun elements in the movie that take you back to the 80's and it's great to see some of the cool toys and things we used to have back in the day. Justin has quite the collection of 80's toys… like Transformers, Micro Machines, He-Man figures, Legos, etc. There's a great scene were Justin is trying to grow up (even though he's still 12-years old mentally in a 32-year old body) and he's saying bye to all his toys… it was funny, but also very touching. Overall, I must give kudos to the writers and the director (Harvey Glazer) for creating such a fun movie out of such a weak premise. When I saw

the previews for this movie, I was dreading having to go watch it (plus I've never really been of Jamie Kennedy). However, "Kickin' It Old Skool" definitely delivers the laughs and it's surprisingly enjoyable to watch.

All in all, I'd give this movie 3.5 STARS (out of 5). Re-watch value: MEDIUM (I will definitely see this again on DVD).

Brett's Review

Yes as crazy as it may sound this is one of those stupid movies that I actually thought was funny. "Kickin' it old school" is about a young break dancer in 1986, Justin Schumacher who was hoping killer moves could help him dance into his dream girl's heart. So when Justin and his break dance posse--the Funky Fresh Boyz -- were challenged to a battle in the school talent show, Justin knew what he had to do. However after starting with a coffee grind, into a head spin and a freeze, Justin decided to go for a back flip that sent him flying off stage. One freak break dancing accident later, Justin is in a coma; leaving Jennifer, the Funky Fresh Boyz, and the world as he knows behind for 20 years. Awakening a thirty-something with a child's mind when '80s music hits his ears, Justin might have suddenly regained consciousness, but his world has changed. His parents are drowning in debt from medical costs, his boyz grew up and went lame, and his dream girl Jennifer is now engaged to current scumbag and former grade school nemesis Kip Unger. Lost in a high-tech time warp, the former break dancing champ is determined to prove that old school can still keep it real. And Justin's chance at redemption arrives in the form of a $100,000.00 dance competition hosted by his rival Kip. Getting his now older crew back together isn't easy but Can the Funky Fresh Boyz rise to the challenge, win the contest and put the groove back in their lives?

Ok for those of us who grew up in the 80's then this movie will have you laughing your ass off, however if you're a little young to remember HE-MAN, Micro Machines, the original STAR WARS action figures, parachute pants, zipper jackets, etc (this list could go on) then you might find a little nostalgia here. The movie is funny, with a lot of slap stick type of humor. I thought the actors did a good job, and the dancing stayed true to breakin in the 80's. There were some really memorable scenes in this movie, and I don't want to spoil it but it's the kind of stuff that you hear people reciting years after the movie has come and gone LOL. So if you're gonna go see this then remember it is supposed to be funny, and kinda stupid so have fun.

Overall Rating: 3 Stars Re-Watch Value: Moderate (I will probably buy on DVD; it's for the nights when you want to watch something brain dead).

Trivia: The film's translation in Russia is "Show me the Old School"
