True story of Jackie Kallen (Ryan), a spunky Jewish gal from Detroit who became a boxing manager, guiding several major careers. Flick focuses on her relationship with one boxer (Epps), who's reportedly a composite of several (including Toney, McKart and Hearns). Kallen eventually left her husband of 30 years, and moved to Los Angeles, becoming the commissioner of the International Female Boxers Association.
Hey... who doesn't want to get Meg Ryan on the mat and go a few rounds? But how convincing do you expect the spectacularly Waspy blonde Meg to be as a hard-bitten Jewish lady? Who can ever forget Melanie Griffith going undercover as a Hassidic Jew in 'A Stranger Amongst Us'! That went well.
