Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Jerry Ferro’s 40th birthday has brought his life into sharp relief and it’s not a pretty picture. A once-promising amateur boxer — who quit so he wouldn’t risk his perfect record of underachievement — Jerry has been knocking around from one construction job to another and spinning his wheels in an unsatisfying relationship, all the while with an eye toward eventually getting his act together. His last connection to the fight game is the evening boxing class he teaches to middle-aged, middle class, middle management types at a gym in Pasadena, where he also works as a handyman. When venerable boxing coach Eddie Bell asks Jerry if he’d like to spar a couple of rounds with Malice Blake, an up-and-coming pro, Jerry reluctantly steps into the ring. Despite the ass-kicking Jerry otherwise receives, a one-punch knockdown of Blake convinces Jerry that it’s time to make his return to competitive boxing. Thus ends a 20-year layoff and begins a hilarious fish-out-water quest for Olympic gold.
Plot: Approaching forty, Ferro is unsatisfied with his life as a construction worker and part-time boxing instructor in Los Angeles, CA. After a successful bout with a young pro boxer, Ferro decides to don the gloves one last time. The movie recounts his unlikely quest for Olympic gold.

Sometimes simplicity is the best policy…
I rented this last night from Blockbuster, upon reading the comments on IMDb. I had been eyeing it on my past few visits, and finally decided to give it a shot. Yep, it was good, and I was not surprised. Adam Corolla is a smart man, he came up with a decent story and had somebody write a decent script for it. While I’m not a huge fan, I like his deadpan humor quite a bit, and he uses it to full effect in his movie. He doesn’t play a character he essentially is himself, and it works, he doesn’t try to act himself into something he’s not. What I was surprised about is his athletic agility, I didn’t realize he was so athletic, or did he have stand ins? I’ll give it a second watch and pay more attention to that. All in all, nice simple story, no special effects, just a good low budget movie about human beings and a somewhat surprising ending that I won’t spoil. Not that it is in my top ten movies of all time, but maybe my recent top ten. Go ahead, give it a watch and enjoy it. I did. Sometimes simplicity is the best policy, I hope Adam will do another one and keep it simple again…

Carolla Carries It
This is an implausible story about a 40-year-old who punches hard. He’s a stereotypical loser a few good decisions shy of finally getting on track. Professionally, he’s just about to get his contractor’s license after a lifetime of not following through on much of anything.

At that age it’s very hard to match the athletic abilities of younger boxers, but with a propitious knockout he impresses a trainer just enough for the man to convince Jerry (Carolla’s character) that he has a shot at achieving some amateur boxing glory, thus giving his directionless life some meaning.

It’s best characterized as a sports comedy and it really works. Carolla has genuinely professional comedic timing and the creativity to devise funny dialogue. The physical gags and contractor humour also get some laughs.

The drama also works. This isn’t just some stereotypical downtrodden melodrama boxer who gets a lucky shot at evasive glory. All jokes aside, this is a serious matter – a man reaches 40 and hasn’t done anything he’s really proud of. Should he keep on struggling? Should he give up and take what he can? Carolla explores these questions all while enjoying some authentically developed romance and friendship.

Along the same lines, it’s worth noting that Carolla seems to have a far stronger and more nuanced understanding of the Hispanic community than Hollywood has ever had. It’s set in LA, which is majority Hispanic, and Hispanics, along with their culture and sense of humour, were woven in expertly, respectfully, and realistically. Carolla’s friendship with Ozzy, in particular, is both believable and touching.

I don’t like the ending, but I guess Carolla thought it was the only decent thing to do. So what can you do, eh?

This movie stands toe-to-toe with sports greats, such as Rocky (1976) and I, Tonya (2017). It’s funny, it’s relevant, it’s touching, and never with any of that Hollywood desperation to haul a tear out of someone’s eye or extract some chepa laughs.

Honourable Mentions: Crying Fist (2005). Another Old vs. Young boxing movie with a similar ending. It’s not as good as Hammer and it’s a serious straight drama, but the production values are high and it has a strong story, so definitely worth taking a look at.
