As an indy wrestler myself, I found this film portraying the story of many guys I have come across over the years. It's extreme accuracy is likely be very intriguing to a fan of pro wrestling; but to someone in the business, it exposes the dark truths. This movie is a comedy, yet it is cut from the same cloth as Mickey Rourke's, "The Wrestler". I could almost go as far to say it is a loosely based prequel. Indy wrestling is full of men who live at home with their parents because they can't hold a job. They truly believe THEY will "make it". These guys sit around and smoke pot, ignoring all of the disfuntional relationships in their lives. Heel Kick brings this to the screen in a comedic way; yet I found little to no humor in it. I praise the movie for it's accuracies, but this movie is another case of the trailer being funnier than the actual film.
