Movie Review by Movie Addict
April 13th, 2008

This moment is the only thing that matters.

Favorite Movie Quote: "Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what's good for you. They don't want you to find your own answers, they want you to believe theirs."

OK, I'll admit it. The only reason I watched this movie was another chance to see Amy Smart (Crank) and Agnes Bruckner (The Woods). A sports movie about gymnastics would not normally appeal to me.

But, this is not really a sports movie. It is a movie about spirituality. Not too terrible different from The Karate Kid, with Nick Nolte (Socrates) as the Mr. Miyagi character and Scott Mechlowicz as the student, here Dan instead of Daniel.

It's all about finding yourself instead of chasing after what everyone expects you to do. If you just forget the past and future (taking out the trash as Socrates says), and focus on the present, you can do great things. There is Buddhist awareness as Socrates tells Dan there is never not anything happening and shows his how to be aware of the moment.

So, forget the booze, and meat, and sex and you, too, can be great. But, who would want to? You've seen it before, but I really prefer these actors to the one in The Karate Kid, and you get to see Smart and Bruckner, too.
