Tough Enough Details


In this sports-oriented drama, Art Long ([[Performer~P58161~Dennis Quaid~dennisquaid]]), a loser as a country singer, starts competing in local fist-fight matches in order to bring home a little extra cash -- and is caught up in his successes enough to continue on to the big national finals. Predictable from the first round onwards, Long is supported by his wife ([[Performer~P74950~Carlene Watkins~carlenewatkins]]), his father ([[Performer~P8487~Wilford Brimley~wilfordbrimley]]), his mother ([[Performer~P62367~Fran Ryan~franryan]]), his friends, his fight promoter ([[Performer~P53739~Warren Oates~warrenoates]]) and just about everyone except his opponents in the ring. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
