Sylvester Stallone wrote a screenplay for Rocky movie. He also acted in it, and for me personally not really his best addition as an actor. For me it was a funny attempt to act. So wouldn't call it bad but funny. In any case check this article to read how Stallone managed to write his screenplay while not having a job and having family to feed and bills to pay. It is pretty inspiring. We could draw a parallel between his life story and Rocky story.
