very few have seen this, I loved it ! The fact that 'The Fonz' was doing a bizarre role like this really fascinated me as a kid, I watched it a few times on late-night cable tv in the 80s

Even though Henry Winkler is sorta a flake in The One & Only it is charming as a man who believes in his thespian talents who gets the girl & only wants to take New York by storm. The only problem is that he isn't a realist that actors are a dime a dozen & those producing & directing don't want to hear his two cent interpretations. This leads him into the life of professional wrestling that @ the time had absolutely no respect. It's pretty bitter sweet but fame is to be found as wrestling finds a life on TV & Winkler becomes the star that he always craved to be & in the end is able to have it all w/ a family life as well. A true diamond in the rough especially as far & wrestling movies go

Why you might ask would I ever watch this. Well I'm a sucker for a wrestling movie. I found this in the net Flicks listings and said what the heck. Well this was a tale of two movies. The first part showed the relationship build up between Winkler and Darby . Let me tell you this was painful to watch. Really painful ! The second half was Winkler getting into wrestling this was interesting enough. But this leads you to believe it is a wrestling movie and while in time it is , it is just not worth the time to get to. I gave it 2 out of 5 stars for the wrestling aspect and 0 stars for the rest of this Gods awful movie.

Boring, but with some good parts. Henry Winkler is funny sometimes but also comes off too aggressively sometimes. Overall, good for cable at best.

Not a bad film. Some funny moments. One of the better films about pro wrestling.
