Storyline

Walter's orphanage -- the only home he's ever known -- also needs funds desperately. Upon overhearing Walter's predicament, Eddie convinces the no-nonsense head nun, Sister Francesca (Malick), that Walter can win the money as a fighter and pay off the church's debts. Eddie's plan: travel from town to town with Walter and enter small, unsanctioned fighting competitions for prize money Sister Francesca dispatches Mary (Hardin) as a chaperone for both Walter and the money and gives Eddie a week - and a prayer - to make it happen. During their journey across the south to the annual Pro-Am MMA tournament in New Orleans, Walter discovers what life is like outside the orphanage, while Eddie becomes morally conflicted over whether to take all the loot for himself or keep his ...

Goofs

There are a couple of fights where you can see that the fighter doesn't come close to actually hitting his opponent. One in particular is when the Eddie and Walter are watching a fighter kick his opponent, who drops even though one can cleanly see the kick wasn't even close to his head. See more »

Felt like a Remake Nacho Libre
6 November 2010 | by (Eastbourne, England) – See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting much from this movie a typical comedy with a famous wrestling star. It Felt like a remake Nacho Libre. What did surprise me was The Big Shows performance, His emotions in it really felt sincere this chap CAN actually act in fact i would go as far as saying he would make a better actor than one of his wrestling performance acts. its not a side splitting movie but does have its moments. In all, The actors did a good job, The cast was good. The comedy was funny in parts, the story wasn't anything new though. in all a well acted fun family movie not just aimed at wrestling fans as in fact there is not actually a lot of wrestling in it which i am actually glad of as when there was wrestling scenes it was the poorest performance of acting in the movie. You certainly wouldn't think of big show as a professional wrestler, yes the scenes were that bad!. Move over Mr Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) there's a new wrestling actor in town.

I would rate @ 6.5
