Just for Kicks: The Making of 'The Karate Kid'

20 min

We just moved into 305.

Hot water's not working.

No hot agua.

Looking for Mr. Han.


Mr. Han?

Me and my mom, we just moved in. 305.

The hot water's not working.

Mr. Han?


Or I could just come back another time.

Or you could just show me how to do it

so I could get outta your hair.

That's nasty.

I'm gonna go throw up.

In 305, where the hot water's not working.

I think he's busy.

Hey, man, you made it. Welcome.


- You play, right?

- Yeah.

Come on.

- Okay, it's us three against them four.

- All right.

All right.

Good job, good job.


Sub! Sub!

My shooting hand has got some jet lag,

so I'm gonna just...

You want this?

You want me to play?

You know I have no problem

beating old people.

Back where I come from,

they call me Ping Pong Dre, all right?

I'm gonna take it easy on you.

Come on, man. I'm 12.

He's really good.

I've never seen him lose to anybody.


Dude. Are you gonna talk to her or what?

- To who?

- To her.

- The girl you've been staring at.

- I wasn't staring at her, dude.

Yeah, you were.

You should go talk to her.

Unless you're scared.

I'm not scared of anything.

Then do it. Go. Come on.

Cool. Right now.


What's up?

I forgot, no English.

What language was that?

You speak English?

Me, too.

So, what are you listening to?


Bach. I listen to them all the time.

They're tight.

Wait, you ever heard of this?

Oh, yeah, you like that, huh? Wait.

Wait, whoa. It's going over here.

It's going below. Wait, wait.

- It's coming back.

- May I touch your hair?

You wanna touch my hair?


You should be practicing.

I am practicing.

What you're doing you won't need these.

What's your problem?

Leave it.

Come on, dude!

I said leave it!

Go get him.

Go, go, go!


Still want to fight?
