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 »

A wonderful comedy for the family on the weekend!
7 November 2010 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching Knucklehead and I absolutely loved it. It is hilarious most of the time and very sad at times, and I really love the funny and sad twists. I was expecting it to be just another time-wasting movie that will depend entirely on its main actor's fame, but it definitely surpassed my expectations.

All the actors in the movie were great. Mark Feuerstein and Merola Hardin really hit the spot and play their characters perfectly, and so did all the other actors in the movie.

Paul Wight "The Big Show" surprisingly is a brilliant actor. He is hilarious and portrays his character's emotions flawlessly. I'd go as much as saying he's a much better actor than he is a wrestler.

Critics and people who are into movies like The Godfather should avoid this movie and not start criticizing and nominating it for worst movie in history as this is just a comedy for the family.

So buy/rent it for the weekend, sit on the couch with your family, get your pop corn ready, and prepare to start laughing at a giant acting like a 12 year old!

Gotta love Knucklehead!
