John G. Avildsen: King of the Underdogs (Derek Wayne Johnson 2016)|USA
John G Avildsen
King of The Underdogs:
Why that name?
Its cause John told stories,
Stories about Underdogs
That were his biggest hits
Rising above from the bog
Rocky & The Karate Kid
Sadly his only hits
At least the ones you or I know of
Next came a few flops
Then came obscurity and problems
The director of this doc. grew up on Avildsen movies
This film attempts to rekindle and remind us.
This doc, just like the John G Avildsen’s movies
Has a feel good vibe to it which wears off pretty quick
Did people lose interest in these feel good movies?
Or did too much cheese lead to lactose intolerance
