    I loved Karate Kid, what i wonder is why is he 50 when the movie is called Karate Kid. I am an avid Karate Kid myself

    Who says Ralph is old? Age is what you make it. To me life begins at 40 and I'm not even there yet. Looking good man. I think I watched Karate Kid about a dozen times when it first released to VHS. You inspired a film industry to create great stories with excellent acting skills.

    I agree he looks great. On dancing with the stars you could see he has stayed in shape. I agree with the other poster that H. Locklear and J. Moore stll look great, as does George C.

    Wow I didn't realize how old he was,but hay enjoy great to see him even in his 50s,because we all will age and NO ONE is safe,so lest enjoy life instead of stigmatizing the old because you might die before you reach 50,so lets respect all

  24. SK8er Girl

    It is not all me. I am somebody else. Plus I am 14 ! 14 IS AWESOME. . Its not old like 50 year olds. Did you know if an old person is riding a skateboard and tries to do an ollie and falls off, they break. Thats why old peoples arent supposed to ride SK8 boards. Its like a real law and everything. SK8ers RULE !

      You're obviously 14. Because most OLD people can spell out Skateboard and Skaters. Also, old people could bail you out of jail from you illegally skating on the sidewalk and OLD people probably pay for a roof over your head and food in your stomach.

      OLD people rule!

      Guess you don't have Grandparents, Skater Girl–with your mentality, you don't have much family or quality parents that are bringing you up. I bet you're one of those test tube babies, huh?

      Old people break if fall off a skateboard? Sounds like you've been doing too much skateboarding without wearing a helmet!

      You're a poser, for skaters usually have more class than you do...

      Poor thing....

    No way. 50 is tooo old. They have to wear adult diapers. Also if they fall down they usually cant even get back up. Old people are just creeepy.

      What you put out is what you will receive you ungrateful twit. He happens to look great at 50 like the rest of these MOVIE STARS....you idiots that put down others....what do you offer the world? Be grateful of your youth...it will also come to pass. Hats off to the baby boomers since they are the ones who set the mark.

      And I'll bet you never could do any karate moves. Don't be so jealous of someone's fame and good looks. The man has done well for himself and he still looks good.
