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.

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.

Even after all these years this movie still cracks up my wife and I.

Don't expect a deep plot or award winning acting, but if you are looking for a goofy and irrelevant comedy this is the movie for you.

If you are a wCw fan you've got to see this movie

This was a Christmas present for my brother. The month or so leading up to Christmas we had started quoting the movie and talked about how the movie was so corny it was kinda good. The funny part of the whole thing is that on Christmas morning we almost opened up a present from each other at the exact same time to reveal that we both had the same idea. I bought him this copy and he bought me a copy.

As World Championship Wrestling (WCW) was going bankrupt, they needed to come up with other ways of earning money, and decided to jump into the film business. Little did they know that within two years, they'd be out of business and their rival, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), would pick up their idea and turn it into a billion dollar industry. Ready To Rumble features two life long wrestling fans, intent on restoring their favorite wrestler, The King (Oliver Platt), back to his former glory. Against all odds, they inspire The King to get back in shape, and compete for one last chance at glory. It's hard to remember through all the intense action and dangerous moves, that professional wrestlers are actually actors, who need to learn a script and play a character, on a weekly basis, so why not put them in movies. It has worked out very well for WWE Films, which has produced some great films, including; The Marine, 12 Rounds, and The Call, but what about WCW's only foray into the movie business? David Arquette was the perfect choice to play this wacky wrestling freak, and he actually had great chemistry with everyone involved. The story told in Ready To Rumble may lack the vulgarity and insanity that has become associated with most modern comedies, but it was certainly something different and did have it's movements of hilarity.
