PG-13 movie has a lot of R-type material.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

A movie made by yahoos for yahoos...the cinematic equivalent of a body-slam in which the viewer is on the receiving end.

Features a shameless cross-promotion we had better get used to in this era of media conglomerates. The script could be mistaken for the portfolio of the Time-Warner empire.

Fans of ***- and feces-based humor will be rolling in the sticky, sticky aisles. Others may be only slightly amused.

It's less about being good and more about existing to suck dollars out of wallets.

Rassling enthusiasts will soon see this exploitation for what it is: a cheap rip-off.

Unless wrestlers playing wrestlers is your cup of tea, better plan on saving the pennies for the WWF's next pay-per-view special instead.

There's not much here for those with ages (or probably IQs) in the double digits.

The film has no real intent whatsoever other than to spew juvenile sight gags and jokes derived in the 4th grade boy's bathroom.

Yes, film fans, there is a new worst movie of all time.

Not even a centuries-long, post-1985 Chevy Chase retrospective could compare to the agony that is Ready to Rumble.
| Original Score: 0.5/4

Ready to Rumble is a sloppy, obvious movie, grasping desperately at the thinnest venier of comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Originality is not the film's strong suit.

Way too dumb and clueless.

Ready to Rumble manages to insult not only pro wrestlers but also their fans.

For better or worse, the majority of the jokes fall into two categories.
Stephen Whitty

There are just endless gags aimed at 11-year-old boys.

The entire movie is essentially an attempt to fill silence.

Goes out of its way to prove that tastelessness does not equal comic inspiration.
