I find it very difficult to be as enamoured of watching boxing as my husband is. I don't like to see men hit each other in order to hurt each other. He says I don't get it. He may be right. He says it is a sport. I find this confusing....challenging yourself to see how fast you can run or how high you can jump or how quickly you can row does make a sort of sense to me (NOT THAT I WOULD EVER BE CALLED UPON OR INCLINED TO TAKE PART IN SUCH ERRANT MADNESS) but when I have watched boxing I find it is usually from behind interlaced fingers or a cushion or newspaper and I cringe as you hear each thud and see some mothers son taking or giving a beating.
That being said - we have just been to the pictures to see The Fighter.
Great film, very enjoyable, thoroughly enjoyed it.
Still don't get it though...........
