ROCKY could very well be the first "chick flick" in history to disguise itself as a man's movie; this love story about two outcasts hits all the right notes for both sexes. And of course, everyone loves an underdog. After a period of worthless existence of unknown length in Philadelphia, Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) gets his shot at greatness when heavyweight champion of the world Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) literally picks his name at random out of a book. How can ham-and-egger Rocky possibly compete? It would seem that a supportive girlfriend (Talia Shire), crazy-old-man trainer (Burgess Meredith), some badass running music, and Five Raw Eggs is all it takes. That and an unorthodox training regimen involving a meat locker.
