Trivia

In addition to Buseey, other members of RBWI can also be seen in many background shots. RBWI Instructors, Keith Jones and Michael Bussey were also in this film. The RBWI members were the only martial arts extras allowed to wear their own uniforms. The rest of the extras had uniforms supplied by wardrobe. Bussey's custom uniforms so impressed the movie makers that they were kept for the film. See more »

Goofs

During the tie breaker part of the competition, when Randy is doing his second break, he asks for another brick. The announcer states that he is attempting a record breaking 9 bricks, but in the original breaking competition, Mr. Lee asked for started with 8 bricks, then asked for a 9th to be added, and when he breaks the bricks, there are actually 10 bricks in his stack. This should have been a record. See more »

For the kids ...
14 April 2002 | by (Swindon, UK) – See all my reviews

Aaron's firmly in the driver's seat while brother Chuck lays down the action yet again in this enjoyable and harmless action romp, a re-hash of The Karate Kid only less involved and played mainly for laughs. Brandis is the asthma-induced child who dreams of fighting alongside his screen hero Chuck Norris. Mako plays loveable sage Mr. Lee who teaches the kid a little confidence and karate and soon enough his dreams form reality as the man himself soon turns up in the flesh at a martial arts tournament. Tame and undemanding, Sidekicks is an idle gem that whiles the hours away.
