Over the Top Breakdown
Over the Top is the marvelous 80’s movie starring Sylvester Stallone as truck driving arm wrestler named Lincoln Hawk. Or Lincoln Hawks depending on who happens to be yelling that name at any given time. Lincoln is trying to bond with his son after abandoning him for 10 years. His son is an ass to him but Lincoln was a deadbeat dad so it’s kind of a wash.
“Meet me halfway across the sky”– This is from the soundtrack and isn’t actually a quote but I like to think that the characters could hear it
The only way that Lincoln knows how to get through to his son is by hiding life advice in the only two topics that Lincoln knows anything about: Arm Wrestling and Truck Driving. And dammit, it works!
