I admit I was a little reluctant going into this movie. I loved Rocky (1976), and I usually dislike formulaic, romantic comedies. I was pleasantly surprised. Matt Markey and Sabrina Bolin's performances were compelling and heartfelt, and I quickly found myself genuinely caught up the drama. The homage to Rocky and boxing gave it just the edge I needed to make the romantic sappiness more palatable. I am a "chick," and I like plenty of "girl" stuff, but I tend not to like "chick flicks."
The movie provided a good end-of-the-week escape, lots of laughs, and is a great "date night" choice for any couple.
