Erik Estrada Boxer Vehicle So Bad It's Good, Well, Almost
28 August 2006 | by gonzagaextSee all my reviews

If the mere thought of Erik Estrada role-playing as a boxer sounds appealing to you, don't even think twice about "Honeyboy". This TV-movie from the 80's shamelessly flaunts the fact that it's all about the brown Latin sex symbol predecessor to Mario Lopez, Wilmer Valderrama (to a certain extent), and even Nicholas Gonzalez of "Resurrection Boulevard". Stereotypes abound, from, of course, the titular blue collar Latino boxer and immigrant family to the white exploiters and saviors of the ghetto. Be smart enough not to expect anything more than a cheesy movie with eye candy highlights and unintentionally funny lines spread out in between. First a cop, now a boxer … any obscure Erik Estrada construction worker movies out there? Relatively hard to find and, even then, only on VHS as far as I know. Morgan Fairchild also stars.
