The Fighter (2010)
That guy did not just get off the fuckin' couch. If he did, I'm gonna get a couch like that.
So basically: The true story of light welterweight champion "Irish" Mickey Ward in his early years. He must somehow find a balance between his family, who has always been there for him, especially his brother Dicky, his coach and the career he has always dreamed of.
NO! WHY?! I thought Rocky was bad! Or even The Wrestler! But no, this trumps all fighting movies as the worst. I don't like these kinds of movies - but hey, I did give Rocky a seal of approval, so there are exceptions! - and so I wasn't expecting to like this at all. But, I did not expect it to be this bad. The Wrestler I could at least tolerate watching the second time, but I think I would run away screaming if someone wanted me to watch this again. It's bland and annoying and I want to punch them all in the face!
I have no idea how this got on the list in the first place. It is just a bad movie!
Ziggi seal of disapproval!
