I have seen it once.

When you posted it, it reminded me of this movie.

Play It To The Bone was okay, but I wasnít a big fan of it. Itís okay and at times itís pretty funny, but its never as funny as The Great White Hype was. Its way too drawn out and at a lot of times, down right boring. Itís a long, winded movie and when it does get to the finale, what boxing we do get to see, is a let down and not worth the wait. Iíve seen worse boxing portrayed in movies though so I donít think Play It To The Bone is the worst, but Iím not a big fan. I probably wouldnít watch it again.

With the Great White Hype, the boxing is just as bad as it is in Play It To The Bone, but itís a satire of boxing in general, so thatís kind of done on purpose. But because itís a satire, boxing is the main draw and focus of the movie. Play It To The Bone is more about the relationships between the 3 main characters on a never ending road trip to Las Vegas.

And I say all of this as a Woody Harrelson fan.

Iíve seen The Great White Hype several times and Iíll probably see it again in the future.

Yeah I watched that the other day for the first time. It was pretty funny with all the inside jokes but it was also extremely corny and the guy who wrote Play It To The Bone was so embarrassed by the re write of The Great White Hype that he wanted his name off it entirely. Both movies are kind of **** to be honest but at least Great Hype wasn't a fake boxing movie disguised as a lame road trip movie with cringe sex scenes and other lame shoe horned **** in it.

Yeah most of the reason I liked The Great White Hype more is because it has a lot more to do with boxing than Play It To The Bone.

It was corny, but thatís kind of the point because itís a satire on boxing. It has to be corny, but Iím a pretty corny guy so thatís right up my alley.
