It'll be as big a bomb as "Mall Cop" was. Caused chaos in the Burlington Mall for months - lasted a couple of days at the cinemas.

Don't think so Mall Cop didn't have The three Biggest Stars in Hollywood in it ... Why did your mall shopping get interrupted with the Food Court ...

This has nothing to do with Micky and everything to do with Alice continuing a lifetime of holding onto coattails. If she had her way she'd be playing herself in the movie.

I was stunned the other day to find out that they're aren't incorporating anything about the Gatti fights into this movie. It's not like they weren't three of the most epic fights in the history of boxing or represented the pinnacle of Mickey's career or anything ...

I wouldn't be surprised if something is now added due to Gatti's death last week.

Just wait for the sequel, Mill City Mauler. This movie is only the beginning. Thanks to Mark, the other acting boxer, and Mickey for acknowledging all of the fans who showed up yesterday. We probably won't be seen in the movie, but we will be heard!

Can't believe that Hollywood is making a movie about a complete loser, and glamorizing all of his loser friends and family.
