Cinderella Man (2005)
Ben Affleck is Jim Braddock
Affleck plays fairytale comeback boxer Jim Braddock in this inspirational depression-era sports drama. The actor trains for months and looks the part, but critics question whether a boxer with a chin like a bullseye painted on their face could ever really be world champ.
Russell Crowe is Larry Gigli
Crowe plays a tough-talking mob hitman in this knockabout crime hit. Though some call the subject matter and script abhorrent, Crowe manfully wrestles another Oscar-winning triumph out of the material, investing the idiotic Gigli with a vulnerable charisma that audiences fall in love with.
