Holy trilogy of the ‘Karate Kid’By Bill SimmonsPage 2 columnist

Webster’s definition for a trilogy: “A series of three dramas or literary works or sometimes three musical compositions that are closely related and develop a single theme.”

Sports Guy’s definition for a movie trilogy: “A series of three dramas in which the first movie did so well, they couldn’t help themselves, so they brought everyone back to make more money in an uninspired sequel, only that one did pretty well, too, so they brought everyone back again for a third movie, just to beat the dead horse completely into the ground.”

Which brings us to the Karate Kid trilogy. Sure, there was allegedly a fourth installment (“The Next Karate Kid,” featuring Hillary Swank as Mr. Miyagi’s new student), but as far as I’m concerned, that movie never happened. You hear me? Just like “Rocky V,” “Another 48 Hours,” “Caddyshack 2,” “Another Midnight Run,” “Fletch 2,” “Made,” “Slap Shot II: Breaking the Ice,” the final season of “90210” and everything else, “The Next Karate Kid” never happened.

For my money, the “Karate Kid” franchise lived and died with the immortal Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, and it remains the most memorable Sports Movie Trilogy of all-time. And since that trilogy ran the gamut from “superb” to “awkward” to “wait a second … This isn’t really happening, is it?”, we might as well recap the LaRusso Era once and for all.
