Saw this movie the other day and I highly recommend it. Mickey Rourke is amazing as a washed up pro wrestler, and Marissa Tomei is half naked in the movie which alone is worth the price of admission.biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

What the heck happened to Mickey's face? Accident ? Bad plastic surgery? Substance abuse? Holy cow, I didn't recognize the poor guy at the golden globes. Scary stuff. I always liked him, so I'm glad to see that he's back.

He had a stint as a pro boxer a while back. I think that's what mashed his face up.

Was an amazingly good and moving movie. Actually surprised me. Rourke was great in it, I think some of his real life leaked through in it which made it so convincing.

 

On the down side, my personal mental perfect image of Marrisa in "My Uncle Vinny", stomping her high heel in the one piece has been shattered! Sure she played an old out of her league dancer, but they could have left some meat on her bones frown.gif

 

There's a lot in the movie, stayed with me for a day or 2, which never really happens with todays movies. Worth a rewatch.

I saw this yesterday on the day off from work; great movie. Mickey was great, and you can see this movie hit home with him on an emotional level. I loved when he started bashing Kurt Cobain....Marisa was a nice bonus.

 

Some pretty intense scenes, laughed a lot...overall great movie.
