Rocky Balboa is a struggling boxer trying to make the big time, working as a debt collector for a pittance. When heavyweight champion Apollo Creed visits Philadelphia, his managers want to set up an exhibition match between Creed and a struggling boxer, touting the fight as a chance for a "nobody" to become a "somebody". The match is supposed to be easily won by Creed, but someone forgot to tell Rocky, who sees this as his only shot at the big time.Written by

After Rocky's fight against Spider Rico, his payment is winner's share: $65, less $15 for use of locker and corner man, $5 for use of shower and towel, and 7% tax. In the end, he gets a total of $40.55. However, 7% of $65 is $4.55, so subtracting that and the other deductions, he actually should have received $40.45, not $40.55. Spider Rico did receive the correct amount. See more »

The fact that Rocky isn't on the top 250 is kinda sad.
Rocky is one of two great boxing movies. Only Raging Bull challenges Rocky as the greatest boxing movie of all time. Not only is there great action inside the ring, the story and drama outside the ring makes for a movie worth watching over and over again. There is no doubt in my mind it should be at least in the top 25.
