Something thematically classic comes through for me here, considering that I really don't care about the real Don King.

Audience Reviews for Only in America

150517: A different film. Made me laugh out loud on at least three occasions. That's got to be worth something, no?

"Only in America" was about the rise of Don King in the sports industry and, specifically, in boxing. I don't know where Flixster got their description of the film. But, it is wrong!
