One of my all time favorite movies of any genre, definitely top 5 sports movie of all time. Yes, it is a satire, and it works every step of the way. Knockout performances by the entire cast; pun unintended.

Great premise. Good satirical look at the sport and business of boxing. Samuel L. Jackson killed in his role. Overall, the movie is good but feels incomplete.

Would have been a one but Samuel L Jackson and Jamie Fox absolutely saved it

The joke is often funny and the actors all look like they're having fun, but it's still a one-joke movie that falls short of its potential .

As funny as it is to me, it's what boxing is. for real.

A fun satire that is enjoyable to watch. Sam Jackson is at his best as Rev. Fred Sultan but the movie tends to fizzle as the main joke of the movie is beaten like a dead horse.

Good movie. Very funny, great performances from Jackson, Wayans, Goldblum, and Foxx.

both hilarious and accurate, this scathing critique of boxing leaves no jaw un-punched - especially Don King's fat mug

This movie is funny. Regardless how the critics hated it, I found this movie hilarious.

A fun dark comedy from HBO films.

Another 1990's goldmine that got crushed by vain fart smelling critics. Here is a fun little fact about this movie...


The idea of making a comedy about exploiting racism for money worked perfectly. This movie was so far ahead of its time. Hell, it is 2011 now and I would still say this movie is a head of its time if it came out next week.

This movie is the "Heat" of comedy actors. Not every great comedian is in it but for fuck's sake there are still a ton, and at their prime!

ON A SIDE NOTE: If you like witty shit talking black guys, this may be one of the funniest movies you have ever seen...

Interesting and funny and also in places very accurate to the decline of (heavyweight) boxing as a sport. Jackson and Goldblum excel and surprisingly Wayans doesn't grate on me.

"I love you". Words to be for warned. An amusing comedy with some great actors. One you should definately check out.
