Knoxville himself, whom I've trashed on more than one occasion, is remarkably entertaining here in a role that is both physically and mentally demanding.

Hits all the right notes in comedy, light down to Earth drama, and a resulting tasteful comedy that's worth watching.

...a whole lot better than one might've expected.

Considering all of the jackass things [Knoxville's] done on his way to fame, his presence in The Ringer helps the film challenge the idea of what is normal and what is intellectually disabled.

As in the best Special Olympics events, everyone finds a way to win.

An unexpectedly endearing comedy.

Though the movie bears some of the Farrellys' trademark outrageous humor, it has a sweet demeanor and makes a noble statement.

The Ringer is often predictable, frequently offensive and occasionally boring, but its heart is in exactly the right place.
