50 best family movies ever
The Karate Kid (1984)
You can wax on, wax off all you like, but what the Karate Kid really taught us was the best way to overcome bullying: kick your tormentor in the face. That’s why playgrounds around the world were filled with children adopting the “Crane” stance. Modern bullies might scoff, but Mr Miyagi’s teachings were surprisingly effective in the aftermath of this superb, if predictable, movie.
