The Champion is a great date movie, even 1st date. The fight for former champion Orlando Leone, Jr, opens up so many great conversation topics for you and your possible new love. Example: the fight to remain true to your identity, the desire to find love after being burned and abandoned, the struggle to believe love is possible (and whats it gonna cost and can I afford her), the struggle to define your identity vs. your fathers dreams...I know it's a "guy movie" by all the adrenaline rush of the fight scenes; any guy will love this, and as for the ladies, they'll admire how the leading lady's criteria for love goes beyond the usual commercial movies' stereotypical EASY LOUISY. The competitive, complicated relationship of the brothers, their beautiful reunion, and the human struggle to find happiness after the world lands you in the humbling role of "has-been" are two other topics movie brings up, great 2 define what'
