The movie started off kinda slow but then picked up when the twist happened

There's nothing wrong with Resurrecting the Champ, but there's nothing particularly memorable either. Samuel L. Jackson plays a different kind of character for once. He's good, the rest of the cast is merely average. Just like the film.

This movie was okay. Samuel L. Jackson played a homeless drunk. He got into the role, but wasn't as good as usual. Teri Hatcher's cameo was nice, but that's all it was. Josh Hartnett is a really annoying lead guy, and is unconvincing as a father. There was a moment toward the end that ruined the movie. Why make a movie about this if everything is screwed and pretty much leaves the audiences feeling bad afterwards
