Escaped Con tries another life as teacher and wrestling coach.
16 April 2002 | by (Tarboro, NC) – See all my reviews

A fairly predictable but enjoyable movie. It has been a while since I saw it but Urich uses his abilities as a forger to leave prison and eventually become a certified teacher. Especially satisfying to see is Urich's role and experiences as a wrestling coach. If you are an amateur wrestling fan then you will enjoy this movie.
