The Karate Kid III

Trivia: The bonsai shop building in the film was torn down years ago, but the stairs outside still remain to this day.

Trivia: When Daniel is persuading Myagi to use his college money to buy a store for selling Bonsai trees, he takes a wad of cash, smells it, and says, "Hmm. Looks like money.smells like money." Ralph Macchio has practically no sense of smell at all, so just for fun he always makes a point to smell something in every movie he does.

Matty Blast

Other mistake: When Miyagi throws Mike into the light switches, the lights go out but the switches never change position.

Question: Why does Daniel's karate skills regress in this movie? After fighting a Karate champ in the first movie and a Japanese fighter in the second, surely he must have gotten better as a fighter, not worse?

Chosen answer: First he could have just been out of practice, but the point they made in the movie was that his moves were old, so they knew how to counter the things he did in the past to win.
