Storyline

The routine of a group of fledgling boxers all living in Ma Galestrum's boarding house is interrupted when Ma allows her roving niece, beautiful Judy Galestrum, to move in. Especially interested is ex-college boy Ken Burke who is trying to quickly make it to the top, and young brawny Swedish janitor Olaf Jensen who believes Judy will fall for him if he becomes a champion boxer. The rivalry between the two friends leads them to an inevitable meeting in the ring. Written by Doug Sederberg <vornoff@sonic.net>

what'sdamattawyou?
6 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ya buncha gloms!

why do people be hatting on this movie? it was funny! admittedly the leading lady character is completely a B on wheels but... OK so maybe the filmmaker was a misogynist, u wanna make some-thin of it?!?!?!

anyway, I enjoyed this movie a lot hokey as it was . . . cause it was funny!

DNA Dooley was really impressive, with his Swedish accent. why does one glom here say that's a flaw? the character was Swedish! whattdya want an Irish brogue?!!!!

full of delightful bits of business. this ain't raging bull or . .. . sure it Wildon't win the coveted Oscar or even a coveted Enema, I mean Emmy! but it was fun and only 76 minutes. ..

so what if they leading man was also a heel? so the two of them deserved each other!!!!

I'm sure Uli did much better with a woman more like a young version of the Madonna what runs the flophouse!!!
