Movie Recommendation of the Week: Over The Top

I’m not sure how I never mentioned this movie but boy was that a mistake.  When you’re talking cheesy 80s Sylvester Stallone movies Over The Top should definitely be a top five choice.   Here’s a quick little synopsis in case you haven’t seen the film.

Lincoln Hawk (Stallone) is a struggling trucker who’s trying to rebuild his life. After the death of his wife, he tries to make amends with his son who he left behind years earlier. Upon their first meeting, his son doesn’t think too highly of him until he enters the nation-wide arm wrestling competition in Las Vegas.

Ah and let’s not forget that his son was attending military school and is a complete brat.   And another thing.  His name is Lincoln Hawk!  I mean come on.  How awesome is that?  The movie is filled with ridiculous lines, scenes, and of course funny faces because of the arm wrestling.

Let’s just say you will be highly entertained as you might from seeing a cheesy Arnold Schwarzenegger film when Arnie was ginormous.  Anyway, the trailer is after the jump…..


Oh and I forgot a cheesy Kenny Loggins song is the theme song to this movie.
