Trivia

At one point of the film, when the cop is going off on his son about people that ended up as failures because they followed their dreams, he mentions Michael Bolton. This is most likely a reference to how Bolton was once a hard rocker, and "sold out" to doing adult contemporary music. See more »

Very Funny
30 June 2002 | by (Vancouver, B.C.) – See all my reviews

Even though I'm not a very big WCW fan, I still thought it had some very funny parts. The movie itself of course was a bit lame, but I guess it was made for laughs. I'm surprised they made this movie about WCW and not WWF? I mean WWF is a lot more popular than WCW. I though it would have been way better if it was based on WWF and not WCW. But everything else of the movie was decent. I'm a huge wrestling fan and I love wrestling. So whatever movie is based on wrestling, I Like! This movie deserves a B+
