If you could promise me a commentary team of Mr. T (as Clubber), Larry Merchant, and George Foreman shilling for his grill, I would buy tickets to every showing of this movie for a month. But I would need to have at least 45 minutes straight of their commentary in the movie, and the promise of a dvd extra commentary track from them.
Ahh yes, this topic just reminded me why Clubber Lang was on of the best villans in cinema. His lines were classic. Just a snipit of my faves.
Interviewer: Do you hate Rocky? Clubber Lang: No, I don't hate Balboa. I pity the fool. Interviewer: What's your prediction for the fight? Clubber Lang: My prediction? Pain.
Clubber Lang: I'm the baddest man in the world. Rocky Balboa: You don't look so bad to me. Clubber Lang: What did you say, Paper Champion? I'll beat you like a dog, a dog, you hear?
Clubber Lang: [to Adrain] "Hey, woman! Hey, woman! Listen here, since your old man ain't got no heart, maybe you'd like to see a real man! I bet you stay up late every night dreaming you had a real man, don't you? Why don't you bring your pretty little self over to my apartment tonight, and I'll show you a real man!"

Okay, I'll backtrack on my earlier comments. If this is gonna' be just two hours of Mr. T and George Foreman calling boxing matches then it could very well end up being the greatest movie of all time~!

The Mike Tyson-before-Mike Tyson thing about Clubber Lang has been said before, but this puts him closer to his true lineage: the fictional embodiment of the joke that Richard Pryor told about the attitude of 70s-era George Foreman:
"Which one's the referee? Cause I'm gonna KIIIIILL the other motherfucker."
"He's too much of gentleman to assume that the lady he is with would have a disease and he's man enough to raise any offspring that should arise. HE IS AL WILSON."[-DEAN~, 7/22/05]
Dexter on broadcast TV, eh? Well that'll entail some interesting editing. Will there still be any distinguishable plotline left, once they get it "scrubbed"? Good Sunday evening family viewing. Ed Sullivan would be so proud.
