Storyline

Coming of age in small-town Oklahoma. High schooler Cal Chetley is a brainy beanpole who lives with his widowed mother. Ten years earlier his father, a state wrestling champion, died in a car crash. Cal's older brother Mike, also a former wrestling champion but now down and out at 28, is estranged from the family. Over the course of a fall and winter, Cal joins the high school wrestling team while searching out Mike to ask for help. Mike rejects the offer, but Cal is persistent. Will Mike accept the challenge or is he destined to let Cal down? Giving advice and encouragement are an enigmatic old man named Red and a quirky friend named Luli. Then, there's Cal's mom who must be reckoned with. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In the USA, there was a mere 18 days between the theatrical and home video releases. This is possibly a record for the shortest amount of time it has ever taken for any film to go from the cinema to home video in North America. On September 10, 2010 the movie was released in a limited capacity theatrically, and it was released on September 28, 2010 on DVD (sold exclusively at Walmart) and Blu-Ray (sold exclusively at Best Buy). The DVD and Blu-ray were later released to all national retailers on December 28, 2010. See more »

Goofs

No wrestling coach would permit any of his wrestlers to make a grand solo entrance (with lighting effects and pyrotechnics) or enter a competition wearing a warm-up outfit that wasn't team issued. (Officials might jump all over this, too, especially at the District level.) See more »

This is a great movie which teaches a lesson on how family can never be broken
8 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It was a movie that sometimes you new what would happen next but thats what will make you want to continue to watch the film. The plot was easy to understand and I was able to make a connection which made the movie even better to watch. You do not have to a fan of wrestling to enjoy this movie. It definitely will make you think how well you and your family gets along. This movie really had an impact on my life. This movie is great to show to anyone who needs something to show that anything is possible. This movie does not just consist of drama but it can also be viewed as an action film and also a comedy. I would say the negative review about this movie are totally wrong. In this movie you will find yourself rooting for the underdog.
