Storyline

Walter's orphanage -- the only home he's ever known -- also needs funds desperately.

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.

A Great, Feel Good, Family Movie
1 December 2010 | by sixleggedfreakSee all my reviews

I actually have never heard of WWE Productions prior to watching this movie and I am not a wrestling fan in any way shape or form. I watched the movie on the recommendation of a friend.

This movie is just a fun, funny, feel good movie that is suitable for the whole family. It is a good, heartwarming movie. There are a few profanities and mild violence, but really suitable for pretty much anyone.

The actors were great. Though the main actor is apparently a wrestler, he is quite a talented actor. His ability to show a huge range of emotions is as good as most well paid, well known actors.

This probably isn't a critics movie. But if you can sit around and enjoy a movie without digging into originality and critically analyzing everything about it, you will enjoy.

This is just a great film to be able to get the family together and everyone enjoy the movie. I highly recommend it.
