Rocky Balboa was more than just a roughneck boxer with a ton of Philadelphia pride. He was also a lover. That’s right. I said it. The man knew his way around the ladies and, though his wooing of Adrian is slightly awkward, it’s also brilliant. Take, for example, what Rocky does for their very first date. He gets his buddy to open up the ice skating rink after hours just so they can skate alone. Talk about romantic! No wonder he got the girl.
