Critic Reviews for Fighting with My Family

All Critics (228) | Top Critics (39) | Fresh (211) | Rotten (17)

  • It never quite settles into a real comedic stride, but there are enough touching themes about the impact of thwarted dreams, having conviction in your own sense of self, and sparks of Stephen Merchant's wit to endear the audience to the story.

  • Director and writer Stephen Merchant shoehorns [Florence] Pugh into a typical sports underdog plot... Yet despite the very familiar and familial feel, this one only lags occasionally.

    January 29, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • If this is an indicator of the future of WWE Productions' output, we can look forward to an unlikely heel-turn for the company into making -- gasp -- good films.

  • Stephen Merchant, The Rock, and the WWE kinda knocked it out of the park with this one. Fighting With My Family is a dope, heartfelt movie with all the bumps and excitement that's in pro wrestling.

  • Fighting with My Family's trump card is an emotional one, and it's well played.

    December 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • As the movie progresses it brings up issues such as body image, sibling rivalry and what it means to be a woman in the public eye, so even if wrestling is not your thing there may be something in the movie that strikes a chord.

Audience Reviews for Fighting with My Family

  • Jun 27, 2019
    Exceptional performances from Pugh and cast as well more laughs and charm than you'd expect make Fighting With My Family an "internet darling" of a film. The typical cliches and niches are there but the film gets a boost from its charismatic-electrifying producer to endure and entertain. 4.05/5

    Not really a Wrestling movie so much as it is a character study that may or may not be remotely accurate. I don't feel like I walked away from Fighting with My Family with a greater appreciation for the sport, but I did feel like I understood how the core cast felt about it.
