This enchanting British comedy follows the trials of Geordie, a wee Scottish boy, fed up of being bullied. As anyone who has ever bought a Christmas work-out video knows, the mail-order strong-man course he purchases seems an unlikely way to turn things around. But in spite of the odds, Geordie has will power. By age 21 he has transformed himself from a weakling into an Olympic standard hammer thrower with Scotland's hopes resting on his impressively broad shoulders at the 1956 Olympic Games in Australia.
It's never hard to guess what will happen next in The Karate Kid - but it's still a martial arts film packed with energy and humour.
