cant wait until it goes away...maybe they should rerelease High on Crack St so the rest of America knows the real story about the Lowell "heros" and not the Hollywood version. Im embarassed that Ward and Ecklund are considered Lowell's sons, heros...I mean seriously, there must be someone else that this city can be proud of.

Great, inspirational read...can't wait to see this movie. I've always liked Walhberg as an actor and as a person because he's smart, yet humble. Thx.

Hey Crackheadboob and Ninjoke, have you seen and helped with the charity work Mickey has done in Lowell and else where? It's nice that you two blights on the city are such fine upstanding citizens too.
Maybe if you would embrace what Mickey has actually accomplished instead of intertwining your own perversion of a life well lived, you'd see that Mickey is a son any town would be proud of.

Good for you Mick. I just wish Bubba Bryan was shown more in the film. He played a big part in your life and was "Always" there for you in good times and bad. I hope you earn a lot from this film for you and Charlene. I'm afraid the cash Dicky gets will be the final nail in his coffin.
As far as the city.... Lowell is what it is. Whats that old saying about putting lipstick on a pig?

You idiot posters who saliver over EVERY article over Micky and Dickie just to post hateful things are sickening. Get a life. I have read every article because I am interested in this film and want can't wait to see a movie but if there was a movie I did not want to see I would not read every single article just to post nonsense hate. Get a life you haters. We have ALL screwed up in our life so please all stop like you have not. At least these two brothers have now done some real good with their charity work. They were also both really talented. Can you haters say that you never screwed up and that you do charity work and were talented. I have a feeling that answer is NO

Wicked Fruad you are on the money. Micky is supposed to be getting $8.00 to $10.00 a shirt per shirt sold form Wicked Irish for using his name. I am not sure if it is his Charity or him personally but I know he has gotten zero. These guys are just another case of guys getting in his pocket and George Y is the worst. This guy was just kicked off the Saint's board for the same thing.

Great, a movie glorifying a family of booze bags and drug abusers.
It's glorifying the good Micky did,it's a look at the story of his life. It's not glorifying booze and crack by any means.It just shows what they both went through.Just as a movie about your life would show the good and bad times of your life. Give them a break. See the movie, and then complain if you like, but it won't do you any good.

That may be Beau Jayne's (also a lowell pro boxer) ex wife and the one who hyped both Dickie Ecklund and Mickey Ward into the sport of boxing. Beau supposedly just hit a Mass lottery scratch ticket for $1,000,000 recently so we'll see how well that goes.

No matter what the past was, Mickey has taken advantage of a second chance. I just hope he himself doesn't get taken advantage of by George Y. I have heard nothing but horror stories about this lowlife, he makes Dicky looked like a saint Your right on the money "Micks Corner"!
