Not what you think

They drink and get drunk every single minute, It's like Deadpool but every time there is violence or rude humor there is drinking. The story line was TERRIBLE it was just a stupid karate kid spin off. I've watched Cobra Kai ( amazing ), Karate Kid 1,2,3 and the remake ( amazing ) but this was just the worst ever. Mr. Miyagi and Morita were very rude and swearing a lot, about the same or a bit more than Cobra Kai. Don't waste your time watch the actual Karate kid instead. Not much violence except for karate and someone a death.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
