Tom Delay: No Surrender, No Retreat!
« on: February 26, 2008, 06:12:00 AM »
My favorite amazon.com book review.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000W8WSJG

The plot of this book is based loosely on the 1986 movie of the same name (No Retreat, No Surrender). In the movie a young karate student hones his fighting skills by training with the ghost of Bruce Lee. He eventually becomes so good that he defeats the evil karate-master Ivan Krushensky, who is played by Jean-Claude Van Damme. In the book, the part of the student is played by Tom Delay, the part of Bruce Lee is played by Jesus, and Krushenky is played by Ronnie Earle. I enjoyed the movie, but I have to say that the book makes little sense -- why would someone who terminated life support for his own father make a big public stink about someone else's decision to terminate life support for his wife? Also I don't understand why Jesus would help someone who blamed the Columbine massacres on the teaching of biology in high school. I don't think Bruce Lee would have done that. The authors of the book should have followed the plot of the movie more closely.

Nice... too bad that movie doesn't actually exist. It would be right up Rifftrax alley.
I actually have an autographed copy of that book, by the way~
