Lead actress Melissa Rauch co-wrote the film with her husband, Winston Rauch. See more »


When Hope and Maggie are in the car for the first time, eating at a food stand, Hope Says "Always listen to Avril Lavigne..." but the CD shown is incorrect. It is actually Robyn's debut album "Robyn Is Here" which was released in 1997 while Avril Lavigne's debut CD "Let Go" was released in 2002. To further the time line, the songs "My Happy Ending" and "Freak Out" that are played in the movie, are from Avril Lavigne's second album "Under My Skin" which was released in 2004. See more »


Hope: Mountain Dew, large.
Counter Boy: Diet?
Hope: Did I say diet?
Counter Boy: Sorry. Most girls order diet. Okay. That comes to $9.30.
Hope: Oh... no, it doesn't.
Tony: No, no, no. She's on the house. Don't you know who this is?
Hope: You tell him, Tony.
Tony: Check the wall, son.
Hope: Yeah. Check the wall, son.
Counter Boy: You used to be way skinnier.

Bad gymnast
15 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

In some ways, "The Bronze" is so entertaining because Melissa Rauch is playing someone in diametric opposition to her mousy character on "The Big Bang Theory". Hope Gregory is the sort of Olympics washout that's fun to laugh at; a foul-mouthed brat who trades in her local celebrity for free stuff at the mall. Rauch really plays the Midwestern accent to the hilt, and it pairs very nicely with the coarse dialogue.

Somewhere in all of this is a sports movie, but that's not where it excels. This character ends up right back where she started, and it works great as an exaggerated portrait of a has-been in a no-name town. This flew completely under my radar, and I was surprised (happily) by how enjoyable it was.

She's very funny.
