Two dimwit sewage workers watch their hero, WCW wrestler Jimmy King, get screwed out of the World title by wrestler Diamond Dallas Page and evil WCW owner Titus Sinclair. They embark on a quest to help their hero win his title - and honor - back. Features cameos by lots of WCW wrestlers. Written by
Jimmy King losing the title, when he was supposed to have won, is a spoof of the infamous Montreal Screw Job back at the WWF Survivor Series (1997), in which Bret Hart was supposed to have retained the title from Shawn Michaels, but lost. See more »
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 »
Although if you know quite a bit about wrestling, you will find this movie to be one of the most trashy and horrid pieces ever (why Oliver Platt? Get a wrestler for God's sake to wrestle!), but for being a piece used mainly to showcase WCW stars, it wasn't too bad, it let you see that some of the guys actually have some of that stuff called talent. Plus, it made for some of the lowest moments in WCW history when they strapped the gold around Mr. Arquette's waist (resume now includes: Scream bitch/1-800 idiot/WCW world champion), so anytime I can see the makings of what would turn out to be a big step in the demise of WCW is a good thing for me.
All in all, not bad, good for a few laughs, while the ending kinda sucked, not an overly bad film, unlike Mr. Nanny, remember that? And now that the movie "Backyard Dogs: The Movie" is out, it won't have to worry about being the worst wrestling film ever made!
