Rocky is an American Icon. Whether you like it or not. People relate to him, and from what I've read, this last film evokes some serious emotions that aging beauties are going to relate to. There will always be the critics that rip it apart, but those are the same simple minded critics that think just b/c Rocky slurs and acts stupid, that the movie is also stupid. they are the people that bashed the first one. to hell with them... Rocky - BRING IT!
