Against the Ropes

Jays Rating:

If you like boxing and Meg Ryan in revealing outfits you will definitely enjoy the film Against the Ropes. Meg Ryan plays the lead role in a story based on the life of the most successful female boxing manager Jackie Kallen. She buys the contract for a crack head boxer played by Omar Epps and with her knowledge of boxing and her smooth talking he rises to the top of the boxing world. This film has the predictable ending like Rocky and mediocre acting but the men will still like it. Women if you somehow end up at this movie just check your brain at the door. I couldn’t see Meg Ryan but I do like boxing so I’m giving this movie a C rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA
