WAYBACK WEDNESDAY: SIDEKICKS (STARRING CHUCK NORRIS)

WAYBACK WEDNESDAY: SIDEKICKS (STARRING CHUCK NORRIS)
Today, Kaboom! Magazine.com “Wayback Wednesday” takes us all the way back to the year 1992. “Sidekicks” is a 1992 action film starring Jonathan Brandis and Chuck Norris. A loner, Barry has vivid daydreams about being Chuck Norris’ sidekick, battling against Norris’s movie enemies — who are often personified by Barry’s everyday bullies such as Randy Cellini. Noreen Chan , his favorite teacher, often plays the damsel in distress in his dreams. Barry wants to be taught martial arts, but is turned down by the arrogant dojo owner Kelly Stone for being too weak. Instead, he is taken on as a student by an old Chinese man called Mr. Lee, the sly uncle of his teacher. Mr. Lee teaches Barry to defend himself from the bullies and treats his asthma, increasing Barry’s endurance. Barry later enters a tournament with Mr. Lee and Ms. Chan and finally sees his dreams fulfilled when Chuck Norris, originally only a guest at the tournament but persuaded by Lee to aid one of his most ardent fans, joins them as a team member.
