Boxing movie review: ‘Grudge Match’

Arnold Schwarzenegger tried his hand at comedy roles over a decade ago with the likes of ‘Junior and ‘Twins,’ and while I found ‘Twins’ really humorous I got the feeling that had more to do with a solid script and some great direction by Ivan Reitman than Schwarzenegger actually having the talent to make me laugh. Still, it worked wonderfully well. Sylvester Stallone starred in the flop ‘Stop or my Mom Will Shoot’ in 1991 but instead it was Estelle Getty who stole that movie, perhaps unsurprisingly, after already displaying her talent in the field of comedy with the 80’s television show ‘Golden Girls.’

Years later, Sylvester Stallone got the idea to make a comedy movie of his own, based around the unsurprising concept of boxing called ‘Grudge Match.’ Unfortunately, while it was promoted as a comedy as such, there was hardly anything amusing in this story about two former boxers in their advanced years who are asked to fight one last time against one another after winning one match each thirty years previous. However, as the movie unfolds we are fed a subplot which almost equals the main story in that a conflict develops over a woman named Sally, played by Kim Basinger, who had a fling with both fighters in the past. When the two are not squabbling and promising to knock each other out, the two tediously contest over her, rapidly wearing out the movie’s welcome.
