Gabriel Caine has just been released from prison when he sets up a bet with a business man. The business man owns most of a boxing-mad town called Diggstown. The bet is that Gabe can find a boxer that will knock out ten Diggstown men, in a boxing ring, within twenty-four hours. "Honey" Roy Palmer is that man, although at forty-eight, many say he is too old. A subplot was thrown in about Charles Macum Diggs, the heavyweight champion that gave the town its name, and who is now confined to a wheelchair.Written by

One of nine sports related films that were released in 1992 which included: The Babe (1992), White Men Can't Jump (1992), A League of Their Own (1992), The Mighty Ducks (1992), Mr. Baseball (1992), A River Runs Through It (1992), Wind (1992), and The Cutting Edge (1992). The tenth one would've been Sidekicks (1992), but was delayed and released in April 1993 despite being completed and scheduled for release in 1992. This movie and The Cutting Edge (1992) were released by MGM. See more »

[after lots of arguing over the rules for the bet]
Excuse me, do I look stupid to you? Or have you people been breeding too close to the gene pool again?

Diggstown IS Olivair County.
A day IS 24 hours.

Mr. Caine, my son and his friend are trying desperately to regain their honor, and his car. While I admire their courage as men I worry a great deal about their safety. They're boys. Let them wear their headgear, just those two, and you can have your 24...

I like James Woods. Yes he is over the top blah blah blah but he takes risk and among his many bad films there are many good ones. In this movie he is at his best. The veteran actor paired with Louis Gosset Jr. does a great job. Gosset is also great as the overweight but still feisty boxer. The we are to old for this is a subtle joke that runs throughout the movie. The film has good twists and turns and real nasty villain played by Bruce Dern. When you get a few quality professionals as they did in this film you tend to produce a quality product. The script is sound and everyone looks like they had fun making the movie. The film has charisma, atmosphere, and a great deal of whit. In my opinion it is one of the better boxing movies made as well. The Great White Hype is witty but at many times is forced and requires more knowledge of the boxing industry for its jokes. Raging Bull is of course a masterpiece so there is no touching that, but if you are in the mood for a good comedy and just a flat out good movie I recommend it.
