What a great character study - a wrestler struggling with his former glory as he ages while still
trying to do the only thing he knows how to do, or really wants to do. Pam, likewise, faces aging and its effects on her career as a stripper. Tomei and Rourke were both OUTSTANDING and I REALLY hope he wins an Oscar for this role. As a sidenote, I must mention a couple of things. First, know that I am a happily-married 28 yr old female.
1.) Marissa Tomei looks FANTASTIC! What a body! Dang girl, I hope I look that great down the road!
2.) I liked this movie better than my husband did.
PARENTS: This is not a movie about the sport of pro wrestling. DO NOT TAKE YOUR LITTLE BOYS! I saw some young guys in the audience and couldn't believe it. THIS IS A MOVIE FOR ADULTS! I am not a parent yet, but it made me sick! Do your research before taking your kids to the movies!
We rented this one and really enjoyed the plot, the dry humor, and (WHOA!) the acting of Colin
Farrell. (You never hear me say that!) I was curious about this one when it ran in the theaters but never got around to seeing it. Check it out.
