The Karate Kid is miscast in this Holiday Film
2 November 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE FILM. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST!

Starring Ralph Macchio. A former dance champion sidelined years ago by an injury enlists the help of his estranged son to prepare for the Holiday Spin, a ballroom dance contest held every Christmas Eve.

This film is very predictable. Ralph Macchio is miscast. He doesn't come across as a former dancer when he dances. He comes across like a typical man that just took 1 dance class. He has no style or grace. Because he does look so young for his age he seems to be only a few years older than the actor the plays his son.

The Dance scenes seldom come alive in this film. A film that is about dancing just needed someone that could of pulled the elements together.

There is one dance scene that does work and that is worth watching. Just the rest of the film is not worth your time!
