User Reviews: I have to say, every time I watch Karate Kid III, I laugh many, many times. Trouble is…it’s not intentionally a comedy! That’s okay with me though, I still watch it every time I catch it on cable. It’s definitely a "so bad, it’s good" movie. Ralph Macchio isn’t a great actor, but Robin Lively was terrible in her role as the supposed love-interest…which only made it better in my eyes. The dialogue was corny, over-the-top, and oh-so unnatural. Brilliant!

I sincerely liked the first KK, was bored by the second one, but KK III is definitely my favorite. It’s poorly-made, poorly-acted, and poorly-written. And I loved every minute of it.
