    is on ESPN Classic right now. Is there any other movie about high school wrestling? And is this one worth watching from the beginning? I've actually never seen it.

    Fucking GREAT movie.

    I have 'Only The Young' on my workout list on my iPod.
  3. Watch it. That's an order.

    Great fucking movie. It's the reason I wrestled in high school, albeit poorly.

    Great fucking use of the song, Lunatic Fringe, as well.

    The Pele speech is outstanding. Overall I give the movie a B, but it has some A+ scenes.

    Funny to think Kuch went on to be the preppy heart throb in Sixteen Candles.

    I wonder what Chute looks like these days.

    Back then he was an animal.

    Anybody here read the book? It was my favorite book when I was in high school.

    I remember watching that movie with a buddy in my basement when I was like 17 and there was some scene where Matthew Modine said something to Linda Fiorentino and my friend made some kind of typical teenage male sexist comment. Unbenownst to us, my dad was at the steps and right on cue said "Is that right?" or something to that extent, which both scared the hell out of us and slightly embarrassed us at the same point.

    That's about the extent of the movie that I remember, except for that Madonna video.
