Rocky the Movie – An Undercover Love Story

16 May

Rocky ‘n Adrian

Ok! So you think Rocky you think the “Italian Stallion” or that epic scene of him jogging up those stairs. Notice how I speak so nonchalant > those stairs? Anywho. This weekend the BF glued into Rocky the movie as it was showing on TV. My first thought was great, a guy movie. But all of a sudden, Rocky was having his first date with Adrian and being totally into her and that’s where I glued in. Adrian’s character was wearing this cute little beanie and oh my! I must have the UBER cute glasses she was wearing. Her character was in Rocky’s apartment and he was enthusiasticly showing off his childhood pics. Now Adrian had never been in a guy’s apartment before so she was ready to dash out but Rocky came up to her, kissed her and the rest is movie history.

I feel like I wasted my Rocky-viewing days as a youngin’. The entire time I was focused on Rocky the boxer, not Rocky the lover. While everyone recognizes Rocky’s love with his infamous “Yo, Adrian!”- my favorite part of the movie is when Rocky accepts to fight Apollo Creed for the Heavyweight Championship belt. Rocky attends a press conference introducing the match but before he steps off the podium, he says:

“I just want to say hi to my girlfriend, OK? Yo, Adrian! It’s me, Rocky.”

Giving your girl a shot-out on national TV definitely showcases your mad love. And “It’s me, Rocky” – just in case Adrian unexpectedly forgot his name. Call me a hopeless romantic but I totally fall for cheesy lines like that…they give me goosebumps. Unfortunately, I didn’t finish watching the movie because I had to go celebrate my momma’s day, but I haven’t stopped thinking about the tender love scenes between Rocky and Adrian, truly an epic movie romance that never occurred to me.

In conclusion, I just want to say hi to my boyfriend, OK? Yo, Frank! It’s me, Nancy.”

    I agree. Very honest and realistic love story. If you have seen the latest “Rocky”, you’ll see your point proven. The opening scene is one of the most tragic, honest and heart-breaking scenes I have ever seen on film.

        You haven’t seen it? It’s a very reality-based story that shies away from some of the over-the-top stuff in “Rocky” 3-5.

        Very good movie. Realistic, unlike some of the other Rocky movies, and filled with genuine heart.
