Editors Note
Note In KICKIN' IT OLD SKOOL, a 1980s-pop-culture factoid-infested comedy, Jamie Kennedy (SCREAM, SON OF THE MASK) stars as Justin Schumacher, a former break-dancing child prodigy, who wakes up 20 years after a disastrously daring dance move left him in a coma.  Justin quickly discovers that his hospital bills have put his parents (played by perpetual character actors Debra Jo Rupp and Christopher McDonald) in a financial bind, and he is determined to help them out by getting his old dancing team, the Funky Fresh Boys, together and enter a $100,000 dance contest at the local mall.  In between brushing up on his break-dancing and adapting to the technological advances and evolved fashions that surround him, Justin tries to rekindle what he had with his teenage sweetheart, Jenny (Maria Menounos), but unfortunately she is engaged to his childhood arch-nemesis, Kip (Michael Rosenbaum).  The pressure is on for Justin to either choose to make up for lost time--win Jen's heart and the dance contest--or accept adulthood and move on.^With cult favorites such as the SCREAM trilogy and THE JAMIE KENNEDY EXPERIMENT lodged firmly in their memories, fans of Kennedy will surely appreciate this goofy and slapstick-ridden film, which contains some serious undertones.  Unfortunately, the sentiment is often lost in the painfully awkward sequences of the out-of-shape Funky Fresh Boys trying to reignite the agility of their youthful glory days.  When Kennedy tries to convey Justin's bleary-eyed and constant deer-in-headlights dilemma as a recovering coma patient, at times he comes across as dopey and annoying, and undermines any talent that he possesses.  However, the film does offer some great dance performances and of course, a catchy ?80s soundtrack.

Reviews
ReviewSource The Village Voice
Review This ostensible comedy may be a new depths-of-hell low in the Emmanuel Lewis filmography, but for star Jamie Kennedy it's par for the coarse. Combining the appalling infantilism of Son of the Mask and the dork entitlement of Malibu's Most Wanted into a perfect storm of celluloid agony, Kennedy plays an '80s breakdance whiz who awakens after a 20-year coma (now that's comedy!) to reunite his old crew. Of course the hottie he loved back then (Maria Menounos) adores his idiot-manchild ways; of course she's still hooked up with his snotty rival (Michael Rosenbaum), who gets knee-slappers such as calling Kennedy's Asian-American and Hispanic crewmates "rice" and "beans." The only tolerable part of director Harvey Glazer's subhuman farce is the climactic dance-crew step-off, choreographed by the one, the only, Adolfo Quinones, a/k/a Shabba-Doo. Word.
