How We Determine Our Grades

This movie is a remake of the 1984 Karate Kid starring Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. The challenge of learning martial arts befalls an eager, but athletically awkward candidate in the animated movie Kung Fu Panda. Screen veteran Jackie Chan can be seen in the family-friendly films The Spy Next Door and The Forbidden Kingdom. Young Jaden Smith is the son of actor Will Smith, and appeared with his father in The Pursuit of Happyness.
