Wow!
9 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a really, really violent film, and I loved every minute of it. I have never been a wrestling fan but I must confess that I loved watching these guys fight in their backyards. The staple scene is shocking and the scene where the guy buys mouse-traps is hilarious. There are so many scenes that are really, really funny. I think The Lizard is awesome! and I wish him the best of luck in the future. I think this is one of the best documentaries I've ever seen
