Tough Enough

Tough Enough is a 1983 American romantic drama sports film directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Dennis Quaid, Pam Grier, Warren Oates (in his final film appearance) and Stan Shaw.


A down-on-his-luck country & western singer from Fort Worth enters a "toughman" competition to help pay his family's bills. Surprisingly, he does well against the other fighters and wins enough matches to qualify for a national championship. An unexpected break forces him to choose between his passion for his music career and his new-found success.
