Rocky Balboa, a small-time boxer, gets a supremely rare chance to fight heavy-weight champion Apollo Creed in a bout in which he strives to go the distance for his self-respect.
Ranked #2 on the American Film Institute's list of the 10 greatest films in the genre "Sports" in June 2008.

Come on, Spider!
When Rocky is boxing in the meat-packing plant, he is in an orthodox stance, not southpaw.
The film opens with the title of the film scrolling from right to left underscored by music. However, instead of just doing the opening credits for the cast, Rocky is shown boxing. The rest of the credits appear later as Rocky is shown walking down a street, and this time there is nothing underscoring the credits.
