This comedy is about two guys who decide to rig the Special Olympics to pay off a debt by having one of them, Steve (Knoxville), pose as a contestant in the games, hoping to dethrone reigning champion, Jimmy. Mentally-challenged high jinks and hilarity surely follow.Written by

Jeffy and Lynn' outfits change multiple times, scenes out of order. When Jeffy arrives with Uncle Gary hes in a dark shirt and pants, When they meet Lynn hes in a gray shirt and red shorts she has a white shirt on and he doesn't have his bag. When she leads him to his room hes back in the dark shirt and shorts and she's in a blue shirt with pants and he has his bag again, then they switch back to her in white shirt and his red shorts with gray shirt for the race. There is not times to change between these scenes. See more »
Johnny Knoxville? Special Olympics? When I first saw the movie poster to 'The Ringer', I was thinking "tasteless"? But when I found out that the movie had the approval of the Special Olympics itself, I decided to see this movie. I like Johnny Knoxville. I think he is funny, even though he has been quite the Jackass. 'Dukes Of Hazzard' was a hoot... 'Walking Tall' was another good Knoxville flick. 'The Ringer' is perhaps his finest. I have to say that, I don't think that anyone who left the theatre tonight went away without learning something. Johnny Knoxville? The Special Olympics? Who else could have pulled this one off? Carrey? Ferell? Stiller? Nope. Knoxville. Well Done!
