Very funny, guilty pleasure...
1 October 2002 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 10/1/2002 - 6 out of 10(Dir-Brian Robbins): Very funny, guilty pleasure for me. This movie surprised me with it's wit and tremendous cast of supporting characters as well as the good job done by the leads. And yes, it's a movie about wrestling. I actually believed the silliness of the characters and their obsession towards their idol the wrestler, Jimmy the King(played wonderfully by Oliver Platt). Another great character actor, Martin Balsam, was great as an old-time wrestling trainer. There are many funny bits as well as a genuine attempt to add heart to these lower-than-life silly characters. This movie worked for me probably because it's focus was not on low-brow humor but rather funny situations that the characters got themselves in. Good job to all!!
