Ryan's performance is all on the outside. She pitches her voice low and tahks about bahkzing. She wears teensy tight outfits. And she has done something unwise to her lips.

Uninspired tale feels like a made-for-TV movie.

February 18, 2004
Relies too heavily on clichéd characters and tired plot devices.

A formula movie about Meg Ryan wearing skimpy clothes and uttering dialogue as painful as the heels in which she's strutting.

"Against the Ropes" has slim, sizzling Meg Ryan in its corner... but the film is a loosely-patched version of about twelve other movies.

Bwooklyn Meg sounds a whole lot like Margot Kidder impersonating Phyllis Diller. The accent comes and goes, but it remains the most entertaining aspect of the entire movie.

Every scene in this movie plays like a scene from another boxing movie.

There's virtually no information about the sport in the movie, which means it has about as much to do with boxing as Christina Aguilera's 'Fighter' does, and it means we have no connection to something that is supposed to be Kallen's passion.

If bad movies were punches, Against the Ropes would land like a perfectly timed round-house haymaker...

In Charles S. Dutton's Against the Ropes, corny clichés and metaphors square off in a 12-round battle of linguistic idiocy.

I hate to keep harping on Meg Ryan, but seriously, Meg Ryan, when are you going to be in a good movie?

Mediocre, cliché-ridden but passable entertainment that completely falls apart in the third act.

Dutton is one of my favorite actors, but as a director he reveals an unwelcome penchant for soapy hysterics.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Against The Ropes is the latest sucker punch that arrives in the arena of unbearable boxing sagas complete with built-in sporting cliches and forged bravado

One of those infamous 'based on a true story' movies in which just about everything is a lie.
