Did You Know?

Trivia

The fight coordinator was knocked out by Edwin Rodriguez when filming the final fight (on the final day of shooting). Ben Younger explained that this led to a much shorter than planned sequence in the movie. See more »

Goofs

Late in the film, the TV in Vinnie's living room makes reference to the Red Sox "chasing the Yankees for the wild-card...". The concept of a "wild-card" wasn't introduced into MLB until 1994, over 2 years after the scene takes place. Neither Boston or New York were in contention as division leaders during the later part of the 1992 MLB season. See more »

Faith & Persistence

Based on a true story, Vinny Pazienza overcomes a terrible car accident to return to the sport he truly loves, Boxing. I was a bit hesitant to see this movie because of all the previous movies about fighters. However the director quickly immerses you into Vinny's world and you are immediately hooked. What I liked most about the movie was how all the characters were so believable. The close family relationship, the mother's ritual when all the relatives are glued to the tube, the family dinners, ornaments etc. Everyone has a lot of soul and individuality. Vinny's determination is all important, but he has the affection and love from friends and family. Most of all he has his coach, portrayed by Aaron Eckhart. A man who is fighting is own demons of being a has been, wanting a winner, but also knowing that a coach must do what is best for those under his charge, regardless of what is best for him or others.
