Wrestler on "Wrestler"

Mick Foley, in Slate, reviews Darren Aronofsky's "The Wrestler":

Casting Rourke in the lead seemed like a mistake. Sure, he had been in some good films a few election cycles ago, and I'll admit to stealing his popcorn-box trick from Diner back in '82. But he seemed unlikely to deliver the portrait of a wrestler I wanted.
The idea of Cactus Jack doing the popcorn trick is just hilarious to me- almost as hilarious as anything in "The Loved One."
