great movie
7 March 2014 | by dwaynemayo60See all my reviews

I'm sorry if you think I over rated this movie but I loved it. Great characters, great humor, just a rolling good time. I have never been able to find a copy. I even contacted a friend of gus mercurio's (one of the actor's) to get a copy about ten years ago. I tried everything I could think of to find it. IMDb didn't even have it listed. There search won't even bring it up, just the Arnold one.

I found out he was the prez of the Australian National Boxing Hall of Fame but he had gotten ill or retired. It wasn't too long before he died, anyway the new prez of the Australian National Boxing Hall of Fame told me all that and said he would contact gus and see if new where a copy was but he didn't think there was one. anyway we emailed back and forth a couple times (the new prez not Gus) but I never got anywhere, he said Gus was gonna see if he could get one for me but I think he was too ill to really do much. What a nice guy tho'

so blah blah blah I tried mu best, if anyone can get one i want one too
