Those multi-media moguls at World Wrestling Entertainment haven't quite got the hang of this "family friendly" turn they've taken with their motion picture division.

World Wrestling Entertainment continues its effort to meld violent sport with gooey, throwback family comedy in the claptrap road movie Knucklehead.

The perfect follow-up to "Jackass" if only because it's equally moronic, although in this case, it's not even remotely funny.

Wight is appealing, but let's hope he gets better opportunities than this.

If a WWE-produced film can't get squared-circle action right, what can be expected of it?

Well, at least someone is trying to emulate the Farrelly brothers -- except "Knucklehead," director Michael W. Watkins' half-assed, halfhearted attempt to copy the Farrellys' out-there style is missing both their jackassical riffs and their heart.

Knucklehead's candy corn heart and shameless predictability are almost touching in their obliviousness to anything that's happened in movies in recent decades. Cute orphans? Really?

A schmaltzy family comedy that won't pass the smell test for kids, parents, or even stoner second cousins.

A distinctly shameless and shoddily made family comedy, this WWE production for wrestler Big Show turns an already saccharine plot into a toxic, fart-laden piledriver.

The ho-hum premise picks up steam as the goofy humor escalates during the course of this bumpy road movie. Kicking off with a synagogue showdown with the infamous Kosher Killer, and later fearsome female sidebars including sisters of mercy who nun up.
