In the mid-credits scene, on the wall of Dante's office is a fight poster written "Segal Vs Ewing". This is a reference to the film producers Peter Segal and Michael Ewing. The same poster reads "Osbrink vs King" in a reference to the talent scouts/promoters Cindy Osbrink (Hollywood) and Don King (boxing), as well as "Gerber vs Mehta" referring to the film's producers Bill Gerber and Ravi D. Mehta . See more »

A film that reminds us of Rocky, then makes a laugh about it.
The movie is about Henry "Sharp" Razor (Sylvester Stallone) and Billy "The Kid" McDonnen (Robert De Niro), two boxers who were arch enemies in their prime, then Razor announcement his retirement from boxing which makes McDonnen enrage. 30 years later, the thought of a rematch is asked by the son of the two's previous promoter's son Dante Slate, Jr. (Kevin Hart). McDonnen is all for it, but Razor is not due to his own personal reason (which is said in the film). At the end though the two boxers duke it out but both go home a winner. Personally I thought the movie was amazingly entertaining. Like I said before, it is basically a Rocky Balboa film, as I said as the movie was coming out,"It may have originally been Rocky 7." However the film is a comedy and it has a good amount of laughs within it. If you are a fan of sports films, boxing fan, Kevin Hart, or Sylvester Stallone fan go watch the movie. My biggest grip with the film is the amount of language. I understand that these types of characters would speak this much, and the fact that the movie is PG-13, but there really is an amount of times you can say $H!% and getting annoying/ tired some. I don't know its probably a personal thing. Overall the movie is a great watch, and I will definitely add this to my Rocky collection (even though it isn't a Rocky movie).
