This movie was a total TKO… and by that I mean it almost put me to sleep. This film managed to almost ruin the Rocky movies and Raging Bull for me. The comedy was pretty flat, even from Alan Arkin which I love quite a bit. The movie goes just like the fourth Indiana Jones movie went “Oh gosh I’m old” “I’m getting fat”, “I can’t handle action scenes like I used to with my arthritis”. They even threw 60+ year old Kim Basinger in the ring (the film) for some more elderly shock value. I would say, stick to classic boxing movies or I would even say Reel Steel beats the pants off of this film. Skip it.
