Matt and I went to the movies Saturday night! He had been wanting to see The Fighter but I wasn't sure if it was a movie that I would really want to see. But I decided to apease him and see it! :) But to my surprise, it was really good!!
The movie is about 2 brothers who were boxers from Massachusetts. It's a lot about boxing but it's also about their family and their life.
Dicky and Micky's mom is their manager and she has 9 kids!! The guys have 7 sisters who still live with their mom and they were my favorite part of the movie! They did so well casting these sisters and then dressing them along with hair and makeup to really play-up the part of being from a small town in Massachusetts in the early 90s!
Amy Adams plays Mickey's girlfriend. She turned out to be a strong character in the movie by being a voice for her boyfriend against his crazy family!
The Fighter has been nominated for many awards including 7 Academy awards! It's rated R so obviously it isn't a movie you would take your family to see. There's a lot of foul language and drugs. But all in all, its a good movie that's based on a true story!
