These are just way overpaid ordinary people. They aren't doing anything for the city or the state other than diverting traffic. What is the big deal?

Star power my butt. Half of these 'stars' would be waiting tables just like ordinary folks if they didn't get some kind of break.

It amazes me how people like Mark Wahlberg or Madonna or Ryan Seacrest get so wealthy on the backs of the idiots that adore them.

I saw Mickey O'Keefe on the set. He's so handsome! It's a wonder what they can do with makeup and toupees. He looks so young!

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.
Are you nuts?? Mall Cop was #1 at the box office for almost a year... and the DVD sold well too.. the movie was a great family movie.... and the Fighter movie will not be that big.. Mall Cop will sell way more then some fighting movie....

Just wait for "The Fighter Part 2".
It will be a remake of "High on Crack Street: Lost Lives in Lowell". Angelina Jolie as "Janet From Another Planet".

I think it's awesome the Micky is having a silverscreen movie based on his life, and all his incredible accomplishments. This guy was one heck of a fighter, who had the heart of a lion inside the ring and has a heart of gold outside. You deserve it all Micky. You worked your but off, and gave everything in the gym and in the ring! And thank you for all that you and Team Micky Ward Charities are doing for children and families in the area. I have heard of some of the things your charity has done, and it is amazing! You were the heart and soul of boxing, and now you are putting forth that same effort to give back to others. I applaud you, and think the world of you. You are an inspiration to all!

I've never seen Mall Cop, everyone who saw it said it was dumb. Maybe you like dumb comedies, so in that case The Fighter probably wouldn't be for you anyway.
