Resurrecting the Champ

Resurrecting the Champ ★★2007 (PG-13)

Erik Kernan (Hartnett) is a sports reporter looking for a big story. He thinks he's found it in Bob “Champ” Sat-terfield (Jackson), a former contender now homeless in Denver. Moving from back page to the top of the heap, Erik pursues his big chance to make a name for himself without much concern for Champ. After his feature story is published he realizes that everything might not be what it seems, and of course there's a valuable lesson to be learned. Hartnett tries but ultimately can't give his flawed character depth, and is forced to carry far more weight than he's capable of. Any energy Jackson gives to the movie disappears the second he's not on the screen. Loosely based on a true story about writer J.R. Moehringer and real-life boxer Satterfield. 111m/C DVD .

Lennix, Peter Coyote, Ryan McDonald; D: Rod Lurie; W: Michael Bortman, Allison Burnett; C: Adam Kane; M: Lawrence Nash Groupe.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
