The most offputting thing about such canny, tear-stained movies as The Champ is not their naïveté but their unholy sophistication. These movies don't mean to deal with the world as it really is, but as it should be.

A three-alarm, three-hanky movie of the highest order, perfect for your kids who don't get to see many truly sad films.

Zeffirelli's inferior remake to King Vidor's 1932 classic, starring Jon Voight in the Oscar-winning role that Wallace Beery had originated, is a manipulative tear-jerking melodrama.

Seek out the 1931 King Vidor version.

Even more of a tear-jerker than the 1931 version of the same story, there is not a dry eye on the screen.

Voight is fine as boxer on a comeback, but Ricky Schroeder steals the film. I dare you not to cry!

The tear-jerking is so determined and persistent that your ducts feel as if they'd been worked over with a catheter.

The original film took 85 minutes, this one 121; the extra length has not improved the story.
