Kurt Thomas, 'Gymkata'
Spend a few minutes on YouTube watching clips from "Gymkata." It's hard to believe that the movie ever existed, but it's also kind of wonderful. Kurt Thomas was an Olympic gold medalist and a world champion, but he was well past his greatest fame when he was cast as gymnast-and-martial artist Jonathan Cabot in this Razzie-nominated classic. It would be foolish to try telling you that "Gymkata" is a good movie, but if you can't have fun watching Kurt Thomas fighting an army of "Parmistanian" pitchfork-wielding villagers thanks to a fortuitously placed pommel horse, you have no sense of joy.
