Movie Time

The drive in is opening this weekend! The movies scheduled are: Forbidden Kingdom (with Jet Li and Jackie Chan); Super Hero; and Never Back Down. Fingers crossed that I'll be able to make it there on Saturday night.

Last night nothing on tv looked good, so decided to watch a movie.

This 2000 movie staring Jimmy Smits wasn't what I expected. I was expecting a boxing movie.

The plot summary from the Internet Movie Database (
An ex-boxer, living with the knowledge that his fight career was cut short by a crooked manager, channels his bitter disappointment in a single-minded quest for boxing championships for his three sons. We see them in pee-wee Silver Glove matches with dad constantly pushing them. Ten years later, they're young men, with dad as both father and manager. A professional promoter, Nick Everson, wants to sign the boys, but dad rejects those offers. Then, in expressions of their varied relationships with their father, each son makes his own decisions. Can dad ever step aside, and can the family hold together?
