The Karate Kid (1984) made $90.8 million, The Karate Kid Part II (1986) grossed $115.1 million and The Karate Kid Part III (1989) earned a disappointing $38.9 million. Nevertheless the studio was keen to continue the franchise, though its $8.9 million take effectively killed the prospects of any further films. After a sufficient lapse of years, the 2010 remake took $171.8 million at the box office. See more »

Sergeant Kesuke Miyagi:
Miyagi figure children no have enough toys, so bring more. Nerf balls, flying discs, all kinds good stuff. You just have fun.
Have fun? Miyagi, they don't need any more toys, they need three child-sized straight jackets!

While I totally objected to this chapter ever being made, at least it had a young Hilary Swank (I seem to be her only male fan). While this film was kind of hokie and predictable, at least it accurately portrayed the horrors of men trying to shop for women. Pat Morita's performance in that scene alone was priceless. While this proved to be nothing more than a spin-off grasping at straws, at least no one completely embarrassed themselves. Also, where the heck was Ralph Macchio! Couldn't he have made a guest appearance. It's not like he had anything to do at the time.
