Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated

In the 1940s, this movie would have starred John Garfield and been on the lower half of a double feature. In 2000, it stars Jimmy Smits as the father who pushes his three boys to be championship boxers, because his own dreams of being a champion were dashed. Despite the attractive performances, the movie is k-o'd in the first round by a cliche-filled script with dialogue that has a higher specific gravity than a heavyweight contender.

Come on, recite along with me as papa Jimmy Smits argues with mama Maria del Mar: "Do colleges give scholarships for boxing?" "I'm just thinking about their future." "So am I, damnit!" "I'm their manager!" "No, Arturo, you're their father!" "It's not about the money -- it's about being the best!"
