Is it just me, or can anyone else see the similarities between Karate Kid and Rebel Without A Cause?
Both movies are about two teenagers who move to a new place and who don't fit in.
Also in Karate Kid, Daniel wears a red nylon jacket the same as James Dean.
*His ex girlfriend was called Judy- which was the name of James Dean's character's girlfriend.
* During the fight on the beach, Johnny says to Daniel "Hey Toro" which also happens on RWAC.
* There's one other scene where Daniel says something to his motherr (can't remember what exactly) and it sounds very similar to something said in RWAC.
I think there are more similarites, but I just can't remember them right now.
