Storyline

Egghead decides his road to riches is through a boxing correspondence course. When he graduates, he takes on champion Biff Stew. Biff pummels him mercilessly (the correspondence course record continues to coach him during the match), but by accident, he knocks Biff out until we see it was all in Egghead's head, after being knocked out by the practice equipment. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Obvoiusly, Michael Vick and Michael Tyson watched this growing up . . .
15 March 2015 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . and Michael Jordan did not. COUNT ME OUT features dogs sand-bagging and humiliating a human, "Charlie Egghead" (no doubt prompting Mr. Vick's animosity toward canines, at least subliminally). Charlie has risen directly from a few minutes of "Acme Correspondence School of Boxing" instruction to a world championship heavyweight title bout (even though Master Egghead weighs just "6 7/8s pounds," according to the increasingly hysterical ring announcer). Charlie's opponent, reigning champ "Biff Stew," looks to tip the scales at about 300 pounds. Biff's Big Time all the way. His warm-up robe features a scrolling message ribbon, just like the signs in Times Square. After a couple rounds, Charlie decides that he's already taken enough punishment. Biff disagrees. Charlie then takes a bite out of the champ, no doubt inspiring Tyson's cannibalistic assault on Evander Holyfield (as the human-belittling ring-side dog commentators may have further inflamed Vick into becoming a serial strangler of "man's best friends"). Where does Michael Jordan come in? During his first boxing lesson, Charlie becomes winded and grabs his knees panting, his tongue sagging halfway to the floor. The instructor commands, "Stick in your tongue--there's people looking at you!!" Anyone who saw Michael Jordan play basketball knows that MJ could NOT have seen COUNT ME OUT during his impressionable years!
