Diggstown

"Good"

Diggstown Review


Hardly awful, Diggstown combines two of my favorite movie elements: boxing and con games. Woods and Dern make well-matched hustlers, outdoing one another over a bet as to whether an aging boxer (Gossett) can beat ten local men in the boxing ring inside of 24 hours. Throw in an early Heather Graham appearance and I'll go the distance with this one.
