Product Description

WITH THEIR BRAINS IN A HAMMERLOCK AND THEIR HOPE HIGH,SLACKER-DOOFUS WRESTLING FANATICS DAVID ARQUETTE AND SCOTT CAAN SET OUT TO HELP THEIR FAVORITE MONDAY NITRO HERO REGAIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP.

Amazon.com

Gordy (David Arquette of the Scream movies) and Sean (Scott Caan of Varsity Blues) are rabid fans of professional wrestling--in particular, white trash champion Jimmy King (Oliver Platt, Funny Bones, Flatliners). But the show's producer Titus Sinclair (Joe Pantoliano, The Matrix) decides it's time for King to lose his crown and allows Diamond Dallas Page (playing himself) and assorted cronies to tromp all over the fallen King. Crestfallen, Gordy and Sean track King down to convince him to take another shot at the big time. Although in the process they discover that King may not be the man they thought he was, their faith never falters. With the training assistance of an old-school wrestler (Martin Landau), they get King back into the ring to face the triple steel cage. Ready to Rumble is clearly aimed at wrestling fans, who will doubtless enjoy numerous professional wrestlers playing themselves, including Goldberg and Sting, as well as the scantily clad Nitro Girls. The movie isn't exactly Shakespeare, but it has a raffish, affable charm. The jokes stick to the basics, such as people being kicked in the groin and nuns singing Van Halen's "Running with the Devil" with their crystalline soprano voices. And what's wrong with that? As a comedy team, Arquette and Caan aren't Abbott and Costello--they're not even Bill and Ted--but they give it their all and you may find them surprisingly engaging. --Bret Fetzer

If you watch this your getting 107 minutes, 35 scenes, one movie full of laughs from beginning to end. I never got tired of watching this movie because it's so good. It stars David Arquette, Scott Caan, Oliver Platt, Rose McGowan, Bill Goldberg, Diamond Dallas Page, Sting, Joe Pantaliano, plus many other great actors that are great. It's about two friends Gordie(Arquette) and Sean(Caan) go to watch there favorite wrestler Jimmy King(Oliver Platt) in the ring. Jimmy's boss turns on him and makes him take a brutal beating by Diamond Dallas Page. Jimmy never wrestles again until Sean and Gordy leave the match all mad and sad until they find Jimmy King and try to get him back in the ring so he can regain his belt and get back at those who turned on him. He gets a wresting trainer Sal (Martin Landau) who helps him get back into wrestling. They continue to train and fight until there big match comes.
SPECIAL FEATURES:
-Commentary on whole movie
-Bif Naked music video "We're not Gonna Take It"
-Up close with Nitro Girls behind scenes segments

Format: DVD
I picked this up to rent one night because basically I love wrestling and anything with wrestling sparks an interest within me. The movie is about two guys, Gordie (David Arquette,Scream) and Sean (Scott Cann,American Outlaws) who want to get their favorite wrestler of all time, Jimmy King (Oliver Platt, Don't Say A Word) back into the WCW wrestling federation. King was screwed out of the company and the title by Sinclair (Joe Pantoliano, The Matrix) the owner of the company in the film. So the two friends embark on a quest to get him one last shot against the new champion Diamond Dallas Page. (as himself of course) The movie is full of jokes and stunts that all move fans can enjoy but only wrestling fans will surely apperciate the little things that appear in the film that relate to wrestling. The wrestlers in the movie all play themselves but for some reason are very humorus at times. (Hint : There is a scene in the movie where Physco Sid and Perry Saturn are crying and wrestling fans will surely get a kick out of it) This movie is mainly geared towards wrestling fans. I have heard reviews of how this movie makes the wrestling fan look idiotic. This is not the case it just shows that we know that is a show and we don't care! Don't tell us it's fake...you won't like what we give you in return. (Another scene that is hilarious in the film..you'll see what I mean) Basically, catch this one if your a wrestling fan, you won't regret it.
P.S - Don't let anyone tell you that wrestling is phony! These guys are seriously the best athletes in the world.

When I heard the people tell about this movie it was just: Ok, Nice and stuff like that. But when I saw it. WOW. It was the best movie I ever saw. There are many wCw wrestlers in the movie such as: DDP, Goldberg, Bam Bam Bigelow, Kidman, Van Hammer, Saturn, Sid Vicious, Rey Mysterio Jr, Juventud Guerrera, Disco Inferno, Curt Hennig, Konnan and more!!!!
If you are a wCw fan you've got to see this movie

While going into the theater, I was clueless on what to expect from this movie. What I got was a movie that made my whole day seem brighter. Great acting, great laughs, and great surprises are what makes this movie a definite 5 on my scale. If you haven't seen it yet, you don't know what you're missing.

Format: DVD
This is a very well written film. It's stoopid and sweet and charming and at times really funny. It's got a Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure vibe to it with a little bit of Raising Arizona quirkiness and a few digs at the Rocky genre. It's got wry humor and slapstick--something for everybody.

I stumbled on this buddy movie on TV, and I was hooked within minutes; I'd never heard of it before. The two main characters are so simple and so disarming, you buy right into the plot. Look, it's not a work of art, but it's not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. I had some good laughs.

At first the idea of going to see a movie about one of the sports that I found the least bit likeable made me wary. But during the film as I laughed to my hearts content I was pleased with the fact that I had gone to see it. The movie definately gives good laughs to any that are in need. The acting in the movie is great and plays off a lot of societys views on the whole idea of wrestling being fake. And after seeing it I'm left with the need to scream, "wrestling isn't fake!"

The main plot of this movie is that after two goon's favorite wrestler, The King, get kicked out the WCW, they go and try to get him back in. I found this movie very funny. The critis seemed so hard on this movie. Anyway, if you are looking for a laugh, pick this up. Maybe you should rent it first.

READY TO RUMBLE

This one is obviously for wrestling fans only really and even then you have to have no expectations to like this one. Fortunately for me I enjoy pointless stupid fun and this my friends is one of those. This movie came out at a time when wrestling was at an all time high but the company that the film featured was starting to go into an all time low. In fact not to long after this WCW shut its doors when they sold to the WWF/E. Of course this is every wrestling fan boy's dream right here, meet your hero and help him or her on their path to redemption. In fact that is the exact plot line for this movie.

The film follows two best buds Gordie and Sean as they fantasize about their favorite sport, professional wrestling. Gordie and Sean set out one day to WCW Monday Night Nitro and could not be any happier; after all they are getting to see their favorite wrestler Jimmy King. Things turn ugly though when a plot devised by wrestling promoter Titus Sinclair and wrestler Diamond Dallas Page comes into play to dethrone the king and end his career. The boys watch as their idol 8is basically destroyed right I the middle of the ring as multiple wrestlers help to put him out of commission. From here they decide it is up to them to bring him back and get him back in the game. They learn that their idol is not all that he seemed and after disappointment finally sets in the must still come together to right the wrong, and put the king back on top while also reaching their full potential.

Now this movie was never going to win any academy awards but it is a very fun movie if you go into it with absolutely no expectations. From the zany moments involving the wrestlers to the downright corny moments with the boys this is just stupid fun.
