Storyline

Johnny Flynton is good at one thing: boxing. He's not too bright, and there's clearly some issues in his past, but what's worse, when he's boxing, his temper flares up. His wife, Samantha, tells him she's pregnant. Meanwhile, he's got an exhibition match with local boy Artie Duane. Johnny lets him get a few punches in to look good, but when Artie starts taking cheap shots, Johnny can't stand by and overreacts. He runs home, where he's in high spirits, but that proves his downfall. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

What baloney!
30 April 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I don't usually comment and rarely flame, but this movie just outraged me and my companions. Seeing this film especially on the same bill as all the other 2002 short film/live action nominees was truly annoying. Johnny Flynton demonstrated what is so egregious about much of current American filmmaking. The plot was trite and undeveloped, the characters were stock and undeveloped, and the message heavy-handed and confused. This filmmaker knows nothing about real working-class people; this was made most evident by the character saying he should do something *simple* like being an auto mechanic. What a putdown of a real working person's profession. Get some real life experience Laci and try again. Everyone else: go see This Charming Man.
