Rosa Rubinsky is floundering in her life both personally and professionally. Small time radio talk show host Terry Glantz is the latest in the long line of her steady but not really committed boyfriends. And she works in a dead end job as a waitress in a sports arena. Bobby Fox, who sees her physically handle the unwanted advances of a co-worker, is a professional wrestling promoter who thinks she looks like a natural for the sport despite she being diminutive in size. Mutually parting ways with both her current job and with Terry, Rosa decides to give it a try. She is sent to professional wrestling school, and then on the road with Bobby's stable of wrestlers to watch and learn. In both situations, what Rosa also learns is that there is much camaraderie amongst the wrestlers out of emotional need as it is a lonely life. While some look for their soul mate within their traveling partners, others just want a body - any body - to keep them warm at night. She also learns the pros and ... Written by
Not a bad movie, but "All The Marbles" still reigns supreme
I picked this movie up mainly because I love female wrestling. From that perspective, I have to report that I was somewhat disappointed: although it shows some great moves here and there, "Below The Belt" does not contain nearly as much wrestling action as I expected. Even the final showdown is more of a ring brawl than a wrestling match. Most of the time the film is focused on painting a particularly unglamorous portrait of the "life on the road" of an independent pro-wrestling troupe, and although a lot of it feels real, there are a few too many songs on the soundtrack and a few too many traveling shots. Fortunately, our female lead Regina Baff is able to carry the movie with a winning performance; she is also VERY attractive in an everywoman sort of way (a woman does not need to have Playboy-model looks to be attractive), and seems to have done all of her wrestling stunts herself. "Below The Belt" is worth a look for anyone interested in the subject, but "All The Marbles" is still the king of this limited sub-genre. (**1/2)
