Tommy Riley's TV has black pen writing on it, written by his dad's debt collectors. The black pen writing changes formation from the scene where it was written on the TV, and where Tommy's dad John left for his new job. See more »
I saw this film the other night on tv, and once I started watching it, it was just too hard to stop. I'm not one to really watch boxing, but this movie was very interesting. It was nice to see the relationships between all of the characters, especially between Cuba Gooding Jr. and his best friend, and their relationship with the boxing promoter. The whole film really got me going; and as I yelled at the tv, I realized that this is a really awesome film and more people should see it.
