  • The transparently unscrupulous world of boxing is thoroughly skewered in this satirical tale of an all-powerful black boxing promoter who's searching for the ultimate box-office draw: a white contender for the championship. Frighteningly--and hilariously--accurate.
  • Credits
    Samuel L. Jackson, Jeff Goldblum, Peter Berg, Peter Winkler Berg, Jon Lovitz, Damon Wayans, Cheech Marin, Richard Marin, Richard "Cheech" Marin, Corbin Bernsen
  • Critic Reviews
    "...Appealing performances....[Jackson] exudes a droll and charismatic joviality..."

    "There are plenty of profane laughs in this cartoonish spoof of the fight game..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...An often-sharp satire told from the inside..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...A happily outrageous satire....Its high spirits sustain a spiky comic style....[Mr. Jackson] makes a delightfully sly presence..."
    New York Times

    "Fast, furious and pummelingly funny....[Hudlin] swirls the movie's pace into a froth of taunts, jabs, and satire." -- Rating: B+
