Storyline

This 'documentary' chronicles the journey of wannabe pro-wrestlers, Reggie (Danny Mac) and Maurice (Chris Wilcox). Despite lacking any trace of athleticism, intelligence or drive, these backyard wrestlers are certain they'll become the next big thing in the business - no matter how many years they waste boozing or mooching off their parents. But after watching them procrastinate for a decade, Reggie's brother, Jared (Matthew Graham) has had enough of their tough-talk. He issues a challenge; join a wrestling school and prove they have what it takes. If they fail? Move out of mom's house, get a real job, and let the dream of squared-circle stardom die forever. Reggie can't wait to prove to his loving mother (Pam Kearns) and on-again/mostly-off-again girlfriend (Naiah Cummins) that his backyard "training" wasn't for nothing. But it won't be as easy as he thought; they'll find no sympathy from their trainers at the ECCW, and even less from Roger (Cooper Bibaud), the jaded filmmaker hired ...

I'm really picky about my comedies. Not really into slapstick etc. This had some slapping, but more in a wrestling kind of way. I found it really clever, funny, and heartwarming
