What's more fun than a wrestling fan who drives a pump-it-and-dump-it sewage truck and sucks up the sweet air of World Championship Wresting™ glory at night? Two wrestling fans – Gordie and Sean! David Arquette is Gordie and Scott Caan is Sean this laugh-slammin' comedy directed by Brian Robbins (Varsity Blues). With their brains in a hammerlock and their hopes high, Gordie and Sean set out to help their favorite WCW® Monday Nitro hero (Oliver Platt) regain the championship. Bill Goldberg, Diamond Dallas Page, Sting and more superstars join the spin-dropping, power-bombing, ladder-swinging goings-on. To borrow from Gordie and Steve: They're the wrestlers who are better than all the wrestlers.

Critics Consensus: Humor at its lowest that isn't funny for kids and is insulting to adults.

The entire movie is essentially an attempt to fill silence.

Ready to Rumble manages to insult not only pro wrestlers but also their fans.

Likable performances from its young cast and a better-than-average script add spark to this formulaic fairy tale and make the wrestling mania watchable.

Comic virtues linger in the memory a little longer than the farcical brutality of this pandering noisefest. Not that that's a significant victory.

Common Sense Says
PG-13 movie has a lot of R-type material.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that, despite the rating, this movie has a lot of R-type material, including incessant and very raw potty humor, strong language, sexual references, and a bare behind. Part of the adventure is sexual initiation for both of the leading characters. A bad guy tells an employee to have sex with someone to find out what he is up to. A girl "presents" a boy with sex as a gift.
