Play It to the Bone

Jays Rating:
Actors: /

A comedy that has an exciting boxing scene but is not very funny is, Play it to the Bone. In this movie, Woody Harrelson and Antonio Banderas play two washed up boxers named Vince Boudreau and Cesar Dominguez. They receive a phone call from a boxing promoter telling them that if they can make it to Las Vegas within 7 hours they can fight each other in the pre-show match before the main event. They call up Cesars girlfriend Grace, played by Lolita Dovidovich, who incidentally is Vince s ex-girlfriend and ask her to drive them to Las Vegas. Why didn t they take a plane? Because the film would have been an hour shorter and we would have missed all the ridiculous dialogue. On the road trip they talk about boxing, religion, boxing, bad relationships, and of course – boxing. If I would have been driving the car, blind or not, I think I would have run into oncoming traffic to escape the torture. The three finally make it to Las Vegas and after the long trip Cesar and Vince are ready to fight to the finish in the ring. The people at ringside don t expect much from two unknowns, but they witness the fight of a lifetime. This so-called comedy was lame. In fact, I received more laughs the last time I accidentally wore my shirt inside out. The fight scene was brutally realistic and was the only thing that saved it from dropping below a C rating.

This movie has been given an R rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
