Watched it with my kid last night.

It was difficult explaining the '80's to him. If not for the NNC theme would have been a total waste our time. I'm still trying to decide if it's like either Flashdance or Rocky on bikes.

Funny- I love the movie "North Shore" and always explain it as "Karate Kid" with surfing instead of karate. Outsider moves to Hawaii to surf, gets clowned by the locals, meets aging zen master type, meets hot forbidden girl, learns what is really important about surfing, gets girl, beats a-hole locals in epic contest, earns their respect.

One of my cable channels showed a widescreen version earlier this year, which i had never seen before; everything I've ever seen has been pan and scanned. Sadly, I didn't record it, figuring i'd catch it again later. Came into it halfway through anyway.

But it's never aired again since, at least that i've known of. I'd really like to record this widescreen version and burn it to DVD.

Just make sure to explain that::
1. dogs do chase you.
2. Don't wear a cowboy hat when you ride.
3. Soviets ALL have beards.

Mrs hfc watched it with us. She made me fast forward through all the "relationship" scenes.I don't know how I'm ever going to teach that kid anything with her around.

He did learn tho that if you hate America you grow a big bushy beard and have to wear a dorky bike helmet.

You should send him out west to spend a little time with Uncle Lemonlime.

Haha! I just watched American Flyer the other day on Netflix with my iPad. The Gym scene on the treadmill was still the dumbest part of the movie.

That kid, the Coach's son? He became the role model for today's young adults...except he had no tatoos or smart phone implanted on his chin.

The cowboy hat was a good touch.

Isn't that gal running for the senate in Nevada right now?

Make sure your girlfriend is there to catch you if you pass on on your bike while going downhill.
