This movie is about a small time boxer who overcomes the odds to become a champion. But who cares?! It’s all about the budgies.
Rocky’s love interest, Adrian, is a clerk at a pet store.
In this clip, Rocky flirts with Adrian, while the budgies (“flying candy”) steal the scene.
Budgies also appear in Rocky II.
I’m sure the budgies were also the inspiration for Rocky’s theme song: Gonna Fly Now.
