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.

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.

Strong support from parents Nick Frost and Lena Headey add to the slick package of killer one-liners, ace fight fiction and emotional poignancy.
December 11, 2019
It's a pleasant enough comedy, even if the outcome is never in doubt. The WWE doesn't make movies about candidates who wash out, after all.

Fighting with My Family won't stay with you because it's brilliant or subversive, but it's fun to watch. It'll make you laugh, it might make you cry, and you get to root for the characters and leave the theater feeling good.

Above all else, the film is surprising and appealing at every level, and if you think this is a story you wouldn't care about in a million years, then it's especially built for you.

A charm all of its own and a heart as big as The Rock's biceps...
December 11, 2019
Yet realism, emotional or otherwise, is beside the point: this is a film that prints the legend, perhaps on the assumption that nothing is too cornball for true wrestling fans.

Florence Pugh's knockout performance is the winner in this zesty wrestling drama.
December 11, 2019
Stephen Merchant's film about an American wrestling family is a triumph, with a star turn from Florence Pugh.

The film is basic and predictable, but its sincerity is hard to overlook.

Thoroughly accessible for non-wrestling fans out there and the kind of family sports flick that makes you feel all gushy afterwards

With a lot of heart and ever-consistent [Florence] Pugh driving the story, Fighting With My Family is the most surprising feel-good film of the year so far.

Stephen Merchant never loses site of what matters - which is the coming-of-age theme. And he blends the fish-out-of-water humour and the triumphant moments to undeniably entertaining effect.

We know how it's going to turn out, but that doesn't matter because what you're watching along the way is so entertaining.

A rollicking tale.
