The year is 1985. Rad Miracle is a shy 13-year-old white kid who's obsessed with two things: ping pong and hip hop. During his family's annual summer vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, Rad makes a new best friend, experiences his first real crush, becomes the target of rich, racist local bullies, and finds an unexpected mentor in his outcast next-door neighbor. Ping Pong Summer is about that time in your life when you're treated like an alien by everyone around you, even though you know deep down you're as funky fresh as it gets.Written by

A good movie but a theme that is starting to become to repetitious for it to have any real impact anymore.
"Saturday, one game, no excuses." During the summer of 1985 Rad Miracle (Conte) is on a vacation with his parents that he isn't happy about. There is only one thing that keeps him going, hip hop dancing. When he starts to explore his summer home he finds a new best friend, his first crush, bullies and a wacky local who is more then meets the eye. For a long time now I have maintained that when one idea hits it gets copied over and over until it ruins the idea. Examples are disaster movies, gladiator movies, teens having to save the world (Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent, etc...). This one continues a trend of the outcast kid who discovers himself over the summer that started with The Way Way Back. Having said that there really isn't much else to talk about other then this one also has a little Karate Kid mixed in. I did like it, don't get me wrong, but I also feel like it's time for a new idea. Overall, a good movie but a theme that is starting to become to repetitious for it to have any real impact anymore. I give it a B.
