Storyline

Kimberly Beckmen is a reporter who cares less about being good, than about getting a good story. She is drawn into the world of W.A.N.C at a tag team title match, which pits Destroyer and Cannonball against Cowboy and Jeff "The Indian" Osbourne. With help from quack psychiatrist Dr. Melvin Gibson who allows his sessions to be taped, Kimberly examines the wrestlers through her low-end news show Entertainment X. Intrusive interviews, and hidden cameras reveal the underside of a league overseen by the scandalous Commissioner Connor O'Connor. Tag team manager Alan Burnskey works against Destroyer's Fiancée, Janice Kreegman, as she encourages the injured Destroyer to retire. Cowboy struggles with Jeff's growing mental illness, while Pretty Boy Floyd and his partner struggle with Floyd's homosexuality and his partner's homophobia. Lobo wants life to return normal after the death of his parents. His little brother Ian wants to be a wrestler himself and looks up to Lobo and the friendly giant... Written by Kevin Gillese and Ian Rowe

So much potential!
3 May 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first came out and I had a high amount of expectations. The cast is first rate as it contains some amazing Canadian improv actors(Wes Borg,Jacob Banigan,Tom Edwards) with some famous cameos(Colin Mochrie,Ron Pederson) and the quality looked exceptional along with all the local hype but........ after a funny first half it really didn't sustain a feature length movie running time. I grew up where the movie was made and tried hard to find positives although I think only cutting 20 minutes could have made it more enjoyable. The couple sitting beside me walked out and my girlfriend who I admit is not an improv fan tried to leave as well. The film for those who give it a chance does show a great future for those involved because this movie felt like a work in progress to better projects. I look forward to continued features from this production group.
