Storyline

Lou Benedetti, a world class boxer, loves people, but he can only speak without a stutter when he's inviting violent confrontation into his life. When a head injury robs Lou of his boxing license, his only hope at a future is as a fight trainer for the upcoming Golden Gloves. Unfortunately, his speech impediment is magnified under the pressure of 30 second round breaks. Lou has 2 weeks to lose his stutter and overcome a lifetime of sociopath behavior.

A stuttering boxer tries for success outside of the ring.
20 October 2002 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Brett Carr tells us he spent 7 years and $100,000 on making this picture which raises two important questions: Why and on what?

Carr opens the movie with a confusing narration from inside a theatre lobby and is apparently speaking as both the director and as the protagonist, Lou Benadetti. What follows is a confusing group of flashbacks as the fighter is forced to leave the ring, break up with his girl and deal with his homophobia all of which is interspersed with more flashbacks to his childhood and flashforwards to the theatre lobby.

Somehow his stuttering problem is dealt with by some kind of silly pschycological brainstorming sessions and a beating from a 16 year old. Of the 6 or 7 subplots that dominate the film only the homophobia is resolved satisfactorily.

Suffice to say, this was 2 hours of my life that I'll never get back.
