    sports related movie than Rocky I & II combined. I refrained from interjecting because of the hostile surroundings and I am unfamiliar w/ 'white men can't jump.'

    any thoughts of your own on this subject? is 'white men can't jump' a spike jones spin-off arsineo hall (sp?) ?

    I don't believe you overheard such a conversation.

    I'd much rather watch White Men Can't Jump than any of the Rocky movies.

    Its a more entertaining movie. If someone other than Stallone were the star of Rocky I may feel differently but he makes those movies almost unwatchable.

    Yes, and Raising Arizona is better than both of those.

    rocky is not a movie about boxing; its a boxing movie about life.

    but, not having seen 'white men can't jump' i am unable to offer an analysis

    White men can jump, though. The white was bred to have longer legs and more cushioning in the joints.

    Sometimes when you win you actually lose. Sometimes when you lose you actually win. Sometimes when you win or lose you actually tie. And sometimes when you tie, you actually win or lose.

    You've got to know when to hold them, and know when to fold them. Know when to walk away, know when to run.

    The first Rocky is in my top three of favorite films. So much more than just a boxing movie. The sequels are considerably less intelligent, yet still moderately entertaining, at least through Rocky IV, anyway.

    That's Rocky IV, so yeah, I liked the movie. The fight between Rocky and Drago is without question the most entertaining part of the film

    Raging Bull is the best boxing movie. Probably the best sports movie.
