When I am left to my own devices, I eat Chinese food and watch startlingly bad movies. Neither is particularly good for you. And so given free access to a host of cable networks and finding myself unable to go to sleep by myself, I clicked the channel to "Kickin' It Old Skool."
Jamie Kennedy plays a break dancer who awakens from a coma and attempts to reunite with his old dancing crew of the 1980's. Compelling elevator pitch, right? That's all you get for the description and solid hour that I spent being mildly disturbed by what I was watching.
However this movie had an interesting passage which made me wonder if I can't escape LEGO, no matter how far I run. In one of the climatic scenes of the movie, we find Jamie Kennedy's character, Justin, struggling with having never grown up...
Bartender: “Why are you smashing LEGOs?
Justin: “These are a lie. They teach you that life is all fun and you can make anything you want; but you can’t really make anything you want. You just get old, boring, and fat.”
Well, here's to proving Justin wrong.
