The Karate Kid Part II came out when I was a teenager, and like all teenagers I had a mad crush on Ralph Macchio. I taped it off the TV and watched it obsessively, repeatedly, a lot more times than I’d watched the first one (whch I also loved, of course). Thanks for bringing it up and giving it such a great review, it’s good to have my teenage taste validated every now and again.
