Some Great Fatherly Advice from Rocky Balboa
" Los Angeles, CA--It's not about how hard you hit--it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward." In the movie Rocky Balboa (2006), Rocky gives his son some great advice. According to one description, Rocky's son, Robert (Milo Ventimiglia), is "the opposite of Rocky - a buttoned-down, corporate-minded businessman who is trying to carve out his own place in a very different world. Rocky's relationship with Robert is strained because Robert has always had to live under the shadow of his famous father; he even believes that the only reason he was hired for his latest job was because of his last name." In the video clip, Rocky has decided to fight one last fight. Robert, feeling that his father will embarrass himself and embarrass his son, tries to talk him out of it. Robert feels frustrated with his life and feels that he's not achieving what he wants to achieve because he is always linked to his father. To watch the video, click here or see below.
