Easily the best arm wrestling movie EVER MADE!

I challenge anyone to find a better arm wrestling movie.

Since becoming a professional arm wrestler and losing my ex-wife, this film has inspired me.

It's not easy being a single dad whilst trying to cope with the rising gas prices to keep my rig on the road.

I'm sure a lot of Americans find themselves in this position, and they too should benefit from this realistic docu-drama of the typical American man.

To anyone, who find themselves in a similar rut, or experience any type of bad luck, I thoroughly recommend renting this movie, and joining the local arm-wrestling club.

Like I said this is easily the best made arm-wrestling movie, and I look forward to perhaps a left-handed sequel.

Am I delirious or is this an alright flick?

I recently remembered seeing this film when I was much younger and liking it. When I checked it out on IMDb, I was quite disturbed. Why in the world would I like this weird, arm wrestling movie with Sylvester Stallone? So I rented it again to see why I had liked it as a kid or to see if I had been delirious when I first saw it. The strange thing is, even though it is not at all my type of movie, I still really enjoyed it. I've heard that the kid is a bad actor and all, but I really don't think he is. Maybe I'm still delirious, but I thought the movie was pretty darn heart warming.

This film does what any good 80s movie should

This film is all about the thrill of seeing Stallone reveal his more 'sensitive' side. Not to mention the great scenes where he works out the rippling biceps of his 'wrestling arm' using an ingenious hand-weight pulley system in the cab of his truck. Sure it's cheesy, but this film does what any good 80s movie should. The part where he turns his cap backwards before a wrestling match is a highlight, symbolising some kind of metamorphosis from sensitive dad to macho man. What a great flick!
