«Against the Ropes» is a 2004 drama. Small in stature but larger than life in personality and determination, Detroit's Jackie Kallen (Meg Ryan) managed boxers and shepherded many of them to victory in the ring. Her personal life was just as tantalizing; she left her husband for the sport and later became head of the International Female Boxers Association. Omar Epps plays a boxer who's supposedly a composite of three that Kallen helped make a success. «Against the Ropes» directed by Charles S. Dutton. You can download «Against the Ropes» right now!

Highly improbable story16 March 2010

Meg Ryan just isn't believable as an agent and coach of the boxer. This was disappointing for me because I usually love Ryan in everything.
