What can I say GLOW, chainsaw, dementia, some of my all time favorite female wrestlers, I remember watching this late at night when my parents were sleeping. The skits and the high shorts were too funny from back in the day... I really miss stuff like this.

Great background info on the organization and all the female talent! I could have done without the seemingly endless footage of Susie Spirit tearing up her elbow. I almost lost my lunch! The singing videos brought back pleasant memories of the original TV run, tho. Also, the comedy skits reminiscent of Hee Haw & Laugh In.

Growing up as a wrestling fan G.L.O.W was a very important show that I used to watch. Loving the storylines and beauty of the women was amazing. To watch a product that offered better women's wrestling than WWF/WWE was unheard of.

Here they are! The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are back in the pleasing documentary "GLOW." In the mid-eighties, the campy idea of presenting lady wresting to the masses swept the world. This television endeavor established a colorful cast of characters (aligned into appropriate good versus evil camps) and made them entertainers, products spokespeople, and (oh yeah) athletes. The girls came from different backgrounds and had varying expectations, but were soon bound together in a one-of-a-kind phenomenon that no one could anticipate. This brief film (run time is only 76 minutes) can't hope to unravel the entire story behind this unprecedented journey, but it is good at highlighting the experience from the vantage point of the girls involved. Almost all the content is provided from the GLOW girls themselves and, as I said, that makes some of the more interesting aspects of the story left to speculation and rumor. But as a tribute to this new breed of entertainer, "GLOW" should more than satisfy those that loved the show and also those who are experiencing it anew.

One of the primary pleasures of "GLOW" is to catch up with some of your favorite characters. Not a lot of time, however, is spent on their modern lives. Instead, they share stories about the glory days. It's an interesting look at the rise and fall of celebrity, and the girls were smart enough to enjoy their time in the spotlight. Much of the film's first half gives you history with plenty of clips, skits, and even their infamous raps. It's an entertaining spectacle even today, so awful that (in many ways) it rises to the level of genius. But the documentary does have a more serious side as well. Many of the ladies are affected by the physical stresses of having a career in the ring.

I could watch this documentary over & over again! The women shared a true sisterhood while appearing to despise one another on film.
If you are the type that is moved by a "real" story involving sports, comedy, drama, suspense and action, you will be glad you purchased this DVD & eagerly recommend it to your friends just as I have!

So happy that this documentary was made. I've watched it twice already and plan on watching it again. LOVED it as a time capsule of nostalgia from a wonderful time in the 80s. The reunion footage is both exciting and touching. Excellent production and continuity!

Having grown up watching GLOW as a child I loved this documentary. It's very well made and centers around Mt. Fiji for the most part. It's really great in running down the history with lots of interviews. There's clips of the bouts also. My girlfriend watched this with me and she had zero connection to GLOW or wrestling at all going in and really enjoyed it too. I highly recommend this DVD. It's a fun watch.

This is the best documentary I have ever seen! The stories of these women and there legendary strength of them is so awesome and the movie itself is so professionally done. There should be a movie made as well as to their GLOW stories and on the road tours they did, it would be even better! GIRLS ROCK AND THEY WRESTLE TOO!!! What a flash back to the late 80's!!! O:)
