[Jimmy King was just asked if he intends to go for the tag-team championship]
Jimmy, it looks like you need a tag-team partner. What do you say?
Bill, I appreciate it, really I do, but I think I already have me a tag-team partner around here somewhere.

This was light and enjoyable film of two affable wrestling fans who want to reinstate a recently fallen hero to the top of the WCW world. I have seen funnier films, but this was not a disappointment by any means. Fans of wrestling should really enjoy it, non fans (like myself, although I think I might be becoming one) should still like it. Arquette, Caan, and Platt make a nice trio, and Martin Landau is hilarious as an old-school wrestling guru.
