: Has anyone seen the movie The Boxer with the one, the only-DDL? I'm just curious if it is worth renting.

: JC

:Is this film worth renting? In my opinion, a resounding YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The film didn't do too well but I thought it was good, not on the level of ITNOTF, the film he made with Sheridan in '93 which garnered several nominations. But if you're a DDL junkie, like me, you'll enjoy it.
DDL is muscular in this one too (like LOTM) though not as gorgeous as Hawkeye in LOTM. But to me he's pretty close to it. Except for that haircut. I'm used to it now but I thought it strange at first.
And the chemistry with Emily Watson is incredible.
Definitely rent it! I rented it two weekends in a row and it took a lot of willpower not to rent it a third time from the local video store on the corner. Maybe next week....
