Theatrical Release date August 20, 2019
Based on a Broadway play and British musical, the story revolves around a case of mistaken identity between two Alfred Butlers - one an effete millionare, the other the heavyweight champion of the world. Coincidence brings them to the same backwoods Kentucky neighborhood, where Butler-the-fop finds love with a mountain girl, but not before antagonizing Butler-the-brute into a Madison Square Garden grudge match.
