This movie sucks
21 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on sale for a buck and figured it was just a bunch of clips from backyard wrestling. You know, something funny to show at parties and goof on. But to my dismay it's an actual film about a couple of guys who want to become legendary wrestlers by working their way through the backyard circuit.... a fake circuit that receives no attention from actual wrestling promotions throughout the world. Despite the fact that this movie was written by a total mark who has no real understanding or appreciation from the business of wrestling, and despite the fact that they throw in this ridiculous love triangle side plot, and despite the fact that the biggest star in the movie is only known for being the black Power Ranger, the most ridiculous part of this movie is that they actually make it last for an hour and a half. The producers ignore the fact that all wrestling is staged and there is no place for shoot fighting in professional wrestling. They pretend that there is an actual grudge match happening in this film. Why do they ignore what is so genius about wrestling and attempt to mix it with mixed martial arts type fighting. The Backyard Dogs get their name when their manager steps in a pile of dogshit.... I think that's pretty appropriate considering the quality of this script, the acting and the production.
