Kickiní It Old Skool (2007)
In 1986, a freak break dancing accident put Justin Schumacher in a coma. Now, 20 years later, he (Jamie Kennedy) is waking up to a new world and discovering that the more things change, the more he's stayed the same. With the girl of his dreams (Maria Menounos) engaged to marry his grade-school nemesis (Michael Rosenbaum), and his parents drowning in the debt of his medical costs, Justin must rally his former squad, bust a move, and win back the girl of his dreams.
Jamie Kennedy is back to relying on his Vanilla Ice wannabe shtick in his next cinematic travesty, Kickiní It Old Skool. If ever there was proof that the guy is a no talent hack, here it is.
Actors become famous for a variety of reasons. Some make it big because theyíre talented, others because theyíre good looking, some because they appeal to some specific audience demographic. Iím convinced that Jamie Kennedy keeps getting gigs because heís just one of those people that knows people. He has famous friends, and his famous friends keep showing up in his movies and getting him more gigs. Thatís really the only explanation, I mean the guy is responsible for two of the worst movies ever made in Son of the Mask and Malibuís Most Wanted. He should be unemployed.
Actually, thatís the most frustrating thing about Kickiní It Old Skool for me. Because Jamie has so many industry connections (or embarrassing blackmail photos), heís managed to put together a pretty great cast for Kickin. I actually like a lot of the people in his movie, but theyíre totally screwed. Sorry Christopher McDonald, youíre in a Jamie Kennedy movie. Youíre going to hell.
