'Rocky Balboa' ...

Several people told me this movie was "inspiring."

Sheesh. No kidding. And not just when Rocky takes off his robe in the ring. Yeow! You can't fake a body like that. Well, maybe you can fake a body like that, but I'm pretty sure Sly didn't have a CGI stand-in.

He's become a bit of a punchline over the course of his career, but he's a good actor. As evidenced by his Best Actor Oscar nod for "Rocky."

And his Best Screenplay Oscar nod for "Rocky."

Not a lot of actors can claim those two credits. You know, just schlocks like Charlie Chaplin and Orson Welles.
