Goofs

After the triple tier caged match, when the King is shown holding the title belt, his name already appears on the nameplate but Diamond Dallas Page was the champion going into the match. It should be noted, however, on the WCW product it was not unusual for the name plate not be changed for several weeks after a title change. See more »

Just plain fun
28 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think the people who criticized this movie missed the entire point of it. Ready To Rumble isn't supposed to be a "good" movie; it is just supposed to be a "fun" one. I don't think the folks who put this film together had any illusions about it winning any Oscars but I think they made a very good "dumb" movie. I am NOT a wrestling fan and I still enjoy watching it because I can enjoy it for what it is without expecting more out of it. I watched it last night with my 10 yo son and he thought it was great. Those who found fault with the movie need to take themselves and their entertainment less seriously.
