    Your ranting might be better directed at SEX AND THE CITY 2 or THE A-TEAM, which are less enjoyable and otherwise less successful both commercially and artistically than THE KARATE KID . I like Joe...

    Nonetheless I feel obligated to see a film or read a book before writing at such length about it. Partly that's because ranting on about stuff they haven't read or seen is just what tea party right...

    Well at least Armond presumably saw the movie, assuming they let him in (he was recently barred from some screenings for his aggressively hostile remarks vis-a-vis Noah Baumbach).
