Good fun if you look back at Panto style 80's British wrestling with fondness
davidstevenhall22 August 2018
I can't understand the bad reviews for this movie, as its as good as most other lower budget British under dog comedy's in my opinion.

If you remember the family fun Panto style 80's British wrestling with fondness, you will probably enjoy this movie and better understand some of the jokes (otherwise you may not get it).

This movie itself has a pantomime stye villain and other over the top characters (particularly Julian Sands as sweet cheeks) with a lot of over acting but when watching, you just need to accept this is the format of the film.

A gentle and heartwarming comedy.
acunnington-4973211 March 2018
This is one of those community spirited films in the manner of The Full Monty, and the Ealing comedies, that British film makers often do (but don't always do particularly well). A fairly formulaic plot of 'let's get the old gang back together for the one last tilt at the establishment' is brought to life by some good acting and some very likable, and in some cases eccentric characters. It's not full of belly laughs, but you can't help but have a smile on your face much of the time. Stephen Graham, Julian Sands, Steve Furst and Jill Halfpenny all turn in great performances (Jill Halfpenny in particular), and there's some lovely Yorkshire scenery to enjoy.

Crawl like a Panther.
meshborg6814 March 2018
Hard to believe with all the household names here,they could make such a duff film.I never laughed once but was annoyed a lot at how purile and immature the characters were.This would have been bad in the 80's.In 2018 its a dam right insult.At near 2 hours long the pace drags as you wait for some comedy or special moment that never happens.

A true gem
lorna-adair-133-80116614 March 2018
You settle into your cinema seat and with the the opening credits your transported to 4pm on a Saturday afternoon. The film has a heart warming story plenty of laughs, and a villain you can't wait to see get his just deserts. The wealth of British talent in this film is crazy, you could easily do a spin off with a few. What you get from this film is a damm good laugh. Worth a watch you won't be disappointed

Bad. And not in getting heat kinda way (wrestling lingo)!
rochfordsimon23 December 2019
Warning: Spoilers
Excellent cast and very well produced. Unfortunately that's it.

Wrestling comedy movies like 'Fightening With My Family" & "Grunt" are great genre films and cult classics. This is horrible. Weak characters, story and fails to build proper tension or a satisfying payoff.

Nothing redeemable in the whole film
stephenlouch4 July 2018
I try and find the good in anything I watch, i have met my match with this. I have no idea why such a Steller cast signed up for such a weak, and uneventful script. No laughs, no drama, no point.

School Production Standard
psfcp16 April 2018
Shockingly bad. Boring and unfunny with a screenplay fit for a poor school production ( and that's insulting school plays).. My friend walked out halfway through and I should have gone with him. One of the worst bits of screen writing I've ever come across

Shockingly awfull
Grech41 September 2018
Watched a while ago, and just remembered it. The information you need is it is unfunny and boring. The story is really bad, and you keep waiting for something interesting to happen and it never does. Not worth watching

A niche low budget film with a confused plot
jackhenderson-5090811 March 2018
Warning: Spoilers
This film will not appeal to the interests of the general public unless British 80's wrestling is your passion.

This films plot is very strange. It starts off with lots off old people beating up a chav and then they go viral on YouTube. These old people are x-wrestlers from the 80s none of the characters are really believable except from the dad of the main character who is not an x-wrestler. They all feel like bad cartoon characters. The manger character and the villain wrestler are the worst for this although unlike the manager character who is just annoying the villain character is actually one of the few that made me laugh at his jokes/action in a way that wasn't because of how bad and cringe it was.

There is a redeeming feature to this film from the side characters the two trainee security guards are the funniest characters in the film even with the little screen time they got and made me bump my rating from a 3 to a 4 single handedly

In the end of the film the annoying chav from earlier becomes good for no reason and the boring main character gets scouted to live out his dream as a precessional wrestler, these are both very unrealistic and come out of nowhere

Overall there are definitely better films to see and you won't miss anything from this film by not seeing it although it is not 100% rubbish
