Cabot must combine his gymnastics skills of the west with fighting secrets of the east and form GYMKATA!

User Reviews: Seriously, this movie is completely under appreciated as a mid-80’s cult classic. It’s absurd plot and wooden performances are what make the film so likeable. If you watch "Gymkata" expecting to see a solid performance by an Olympic gymnast, then you are missing the allure this film has on so many 28-35 year old men that secretly rent this title at least once a year … for a good laugh. The movie is funny because it’s so bad and takes itself so seriously. Enjoy it. Stop analyzing it as of it were ever intended to be a cinematic masterpiece. Bad movies deserve good ratings because they are so unintentionally funny. So, rent Gymkata, Glitter, and any movie with Julia Stiles, sit back, relax, and marvel at the unintentional comedy.
