Storyline

After con artist Eddie Sullivan (Feuerstein) incurs a large debt with a local criminal ringleader, he creates a get-rich-quick scheme and enlists a sweet gentle giant named Walter (Wight) as his unwitting accomplice. 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 ...

Family Fun In The Best Disney Tradition.
10 November 2010 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana,United States) – See all my reviews

It may not be too original, but it's been a long time since I have seen a movie this well acted and clean. The Big Show can actually act. The man has some serious acting chops, exhibiting a range of emotion not required in hardcore action movies.

The movie screams corny when you read the plot of the movie and realize what company is behind it, but it isn't. WWE finally made a pretty good movie. Even the sound was unusually crisp and reminded me just how good my home theater system can make a movie sound.

This movie is in the tradition of the best Disney movies. Disney should make movie this good and of this quality, but they don't do it anymore.

If this crew gets together again and makes another movie, me and mine will be right there waiting.

Good job, Mr Wright.
