We should all go to it together.

The premise, courtesy of wikipedia.

Randy "Ram" Robinson (Mickey Rourke) is a professional wrestler from the 1980s who is forced to retire after a heart attack threatens to kill him the next time he wrestles. He takes a job at a deli, attempts to form a relationship with an aging stripper (Marisa Tomei) and does his best to reconcile with his estranged daughter (Evan Rachel Wood). However, he is drawn to the prospect of a rematch with his old wrestling nemesis the Ayatollah (Ernest Miller), even though the fight may cost him his life.

I've heard good things about this movie and Rourke's role in it. I think he's been really good in a lot of his more recent movies though. He was awesome as "the cook" in Spun (he was a crystal meth cook), his Sin City role was good (as was Bruce Willis'), and he was pretty funny in Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

Of course, I always hold a special place in my heart for Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man...I don't know why.
