Several yells are heard twice: When Daniel kicks the door open at the apartment, Freddy goes "Oh, ah!" twice, but it's the same oh, ah; When Johnny elbows Daniel's knee, when he rolls over you hear "Oh, ugh!" twice; and when Ali squeals with delight after Danny wins, you hear "Ah, uhh!" twice. I assume they didn't have enough reaction "grunts" in some spots so they looped the same one.

Why is Miyagi in his workshop and not at home when he rescues Daniel? It was after hours for Miyagi. Was he waiting for him to come back with the shower curtain?

Ali sort of disappears when everyone is crowding around Daniel after he wins.

After the country club incident Ali is shining Daniel on at the arcade. Why? He got spilled on, then ran off. She was mad him at him for.....???

Kreese says "Sweep the leg", with Johnny looking all stunned, and the music cue all sinister. Yet Johnny gets a point for sweeping. Why all the drama then?

The ref says "1 point Lawrence, 2-2". After a mad scramble, Johnny finishes with a punch to Daniel's head. Why did this hit not win the match?

That's all for now, heh.

I think that if you watch the deleted scenes, Daniel blew off Ali several times after the whole Country Club incident. That is why Ali was rude to Daniel at the arcade. Hope that helps.

Are the deleted scenes available on the Karate Kid 1-3 DVD

Here are some goofs as listed on imbd.com:

Continuity: When Daniel is introduced to Suzy, he mentions that the brand of his bike is a "Miyagi Turbo". Prior to this, Daniel had one encounter with Miyagi but hasn't yet found out his name. It could, of course, just be one of those coincidences that life is full of.


Revealing mistakes: In the scene where Mr. Miyagi and Daniel are attempting to catch a fly in their chopsticks, you can see that the fly is attached to a thin wire when it "flies" in between their two heads.


Audio/visual unsynchronised: When Daniel picks up Ali for their first date and his mother's station wagon won't start, they push start it and ask Ali to "pop the clutch", however you can hear the starter is used to start the engine.


Crew or equipment visible: When Daniel is being chased through a field by Johnny and the other boys (from the costume party), puffs of smoke being generated to look like evening fog can clearly be seen.


Continuity: Daniel's has cuts and scrapes (from getting beaten up the day before) during the "wax on, wax off" scene at Mr. Miyagi's house. His wounds disappear when he and Ali go to Golf 'N' Stuff and reappear the next day in time for the "sand the floor" scene at Mr. Miyagi's.


Continuity: A glove appears on Johnny's hand between shots when Daniel is putting the water hose over Johnny's head in the bathroom during the school party.


Continuity: Johnny's headband disappears and reappears between shots during the final fight.


Continuity: Johnny's wound after being trounced by Miyagi is not consistent with the attack he endured (a black eye from being flipped on his back and struck to the chest with a downward knifehand blow).


Revealing mistakes: On the first day of school, Daniel locks up his bike, but he only wraps the chain around the front tire, and misses the "lock frame" completely - he fastens the lock before he even wraps it around the metal lock frame.

I am pretty sure that Daniel says "Miatchi" turbo and not Miyagi turbo. I think that Miatchi is a type of bike

So basically the makers of the movie assumed that movie watchers would watch the deleted scenes in order to understand the movie?

Well,
I admit that the deleted scenes not only would have helped people understand that little scenario, and also would have been a plus to the overall movie. However, even without the deleted scenes, one could make a pretty good asumption as to why Ali is rude to Daniel. For instance, before I saw the deleted scenes, I always believed that Ali was mad at Daniel for somewhat "spying" on her at the Country Club. Hope that helps.

I got another one:

-$ilver tells Kreeze: " I´ve bought 20 locations,yours 100%". Why the hell he later offers Barnes 35% and then 50% of the cobra kai dojos if they belonged to Kreeze, or they were planning to get somehow rid of Barnes,whether or not he win the tournament,besides he was not an original cobra kai.Perhaps the papers he signed for Barnes were a fake

maybe he bought 40 locations and he gave half of them to barnes, making them all 100% his.
 
Posted by Silverado (Member # 1388) on :
 
40 locations..cool!! that means 20/20, plus the old cobra dojo,the Kree$ilver asociation still would have the majority of the actions anyway.

This one isn't that bad an error. Earlier in the movie when Daniel brought his busted up bike home and threw it in the dumpster, Miyagi stepped out of his workshop. So clearly he likes to work late at that workshop. Fixing up his Bonzai trees? Who knows what he does there.

Yeah I never understood this either. She runs out screaming towards him, yet we don't see her in the crowd surrounding him. I also never understood why Freddy and the other guys came out to see Daniel and cheer him on? Didn't they write him off as a loser after he got beat up by Johnny and the Cobra Kai? If I was Daniel, I don't know if I would even want their friendship again.

I never fully understood this either. I guess it was because he was spying on her.

Good point here, this is something I often wondered about. Near as I can tell even though it was technically a fair and legal manuever, it was a very low thing to do considering what Bobby had already done to Daniel's leg.

That's all for now, heh.

I don't think Johnny used proper form with that hit to the head. It looked like just a violent street blow. Johnny had another chance to win the tournament. When Johnny grabbed Daniel's leg and elbowed it near the end, instead of the elbow he could have simply given Daniel a front kick to the chest and won the tournament right there.

Ali was rude to Daniel not because she felt that he was spying on her, she was the one who told him to wait for her at the Country Club so that they could go out. In a scene which was deleted Ali tried to speak to Daniel to explain to him what really happened, that she was not kissing Johnny, but that he forced a kiss on her. Daniel kept giving her the cold shoulder and wouldn't hear a word she had to say. That was why she was angry with him at the arcade and that was why he said to her "I just wanted to apologize" for basically giving her the cold shoulder and not allowing her to speak. Hope that helps some. [Razz]

As long as I know in Karate Tournaments if one member of a team commits a violation, the whole team is disqualified...

Anyway,let`s suppose they don´t have that rule, why they disqualified Bobby for one violation when Barnes had several violations,even two kicks between the legs.Why so much benevolence with him,perhaps $ilver was an sponsor.
 
Posted by Silverado (Member # 1388) on :
 
Angel, I think Ali was mad because Daniel didn´t invite her to his little birthday party

"WHEN JOHNNY GRABBED DANIEL'S LEG AND ELBOWED IT NEAR THE END, INSTEAD OF THE ELBOW HE COULD HAVE SIMPLY GIVEN DANIEL A FRONT KICK TO THE CHEST AND WON THE TOURNAMENT RIGHT THERE".

Well he didn´t do that because he thought Daniel was finished and he wanted to make him suffer a little more(for stealing his girlfriend)before he gets the winning point.

Kevin S., some great points, things I hadn't thought of.

But what an irresponsibility on the part of the filmmakers (Ali shines Daniel on). Totally chucking out a scene so another doesn't make sense. Now, the film was 2 hours 10 minutes as it was, but still, I'm sure something else could've been subtracted for time measures.
