    I have an odd desire to watch this movie now. As much as I love Stallone for Rocky...he's made some bombs.

    However this one and Cobra fall into bad movies that are good.

    I also turned my hat around slowly before replying to this thread....

    You're looking for sports betting realism? Look no further than Dodgeball. Apparently, that sportsbook let the team captain bet an obscene amount on his own team, and then pays him in cash at the event when he wins the bet!

    Check out Paradise Alley, he wrote, directed, and starred. Kind of hokey, but like a train wreck, I have to slow down and watch if its on.

    I have never heard of it but just looked it up on IMDB...I will see if I can find it to watch. I didn't know he made it.

    I did re-watch Cobra the other night though. That 50 Merc that he drives is beautiful. I don't like the skirts over the rear wheels but damn I love that car

    I was just going to say that- the only reason to watch Cobra was the car. IMO his worst movies- Cliffhanger and Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot.

    It's on Netflix right now. Apparently Stallone wrote this before Rocky but could not get any interest in producing it.

    Yeah that car is the real deal. I would love to restore one. Along with a 57 Chevy and an old Ford F-100 shortbed

    Ok cool...I will watch it this weekend
