Play it to the bone

Imagine White Men Can't Jump without the wit or chemistry. Then make it just shy of 100 times shitter, and make it about boxing. Ta-daaaa, you have this film.

How can Ron Shelton make Tin Cup, Bull Durham etc and yet... Well, his bad films are truly, truly dreadful. Polar opposites.

OK, I know it's a bad film. Not gonna argue with you on that point. But it's one of those bad films that I really enjoy. Maybe because it sums up all the good and bad things about boxing. Maybe because I heart Lolita Davidovich.
