Whoever dreamt up this nonsense needs our help.
1 January 2007 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Certainly one of the most idiotic films ever made. A PC message movie that ends up making fun of midgets. The dialogue, the situations, the acting (especially Beckinsale) all move constantly somewhere between ludicrous and bizarre. Sometimes unintentionally funny, not funny when it's meant to be, and sometimes just appallingly dumb, and even disgusting, like the Marxist dwarf wrenching with Arquette – yuck!

Casting Will Smith as Mohammad Ali pales in comparison to Oldman playing a hunchbacked midget. Just watching him in this role will you have you either laughing or just staring at the movie in disbelief. Everyone involved in this – except the midgets – i.e. the famous actors who agreed to do this, the man who wrote this, the director, the producers – are utter cretins.
