Consensus: Kickin' It Old Skool is one big unfunny pop culture reference that doesn't feature many laughs.

Nathan Rabin
AV Club

Were the filmmakers really so wedded to every scene they couldn't find 15 minutes to cut? Besides, shouldn't we as a culture being moving on to depleting the comic potential of '90s nostalgia by now?

Kennedy is a negligible performer, a hopeless dancer, and his romantic connection to the lovely Menounos is preposterous even by the movie's absurd standards.

Tom Meek
Boston Phoenix

The reunion of the multi-ethnic Funky Fresh Boys triggers a fusillade of un-PC misfires as the not-so-fab four try to alleviate their personal woes by entering an American Idol-esque dance-troupe contest.

Although technically a coming-of-age film, Kickin' It is, in every way, regressive.

Laugh proof and choreographically blah.

Stefan Birgir Stefansson

I like Kennedy but he doesn't make it easy for me

Peter Hartlaub
San Francisco Chronicle

Despite some legitimately entertaining dance sequences, no amount of parachute pants can disguise the fact that Kickin' is a very stupid movie, with many more failed jokes than successful ones.

A pathetically unfunny comedy that should have been shipped straight to video, if not recycled as guitar picks.

Sandie Angulo Chen
Common Sense Media

Kennedy's lowbrow comedy best for '80s veterans.
