Fighting With My Family feels like it was chewed up and spit out in a uniform box from the inspirational sports movie factory. Every emotional trope is trotted out on full display in this watered-down biopic.
Fighting With My Family doesn't break the mold of sports movies, but it does a known story with enough heart and energy to easily win over audiences and make more than one kid pick up interest in pro wrestling. And really, isn't that the point?
The filmmaking is pretty standard, and it hits all the expected plot points, but "Fighting with My Family" has a tremendous amount of heart. It's the kind of feel-good movie that families can enjoy together.
Brings to life both Paige's outward image of strength and her deep connection to her roots - particularly her ability to see the strength within her brother, even though it takes her longer to fully appreciate her own.
The Knights - the wrestling clan at the center of Fighting With My Family - are at least idiosyncratic and endearing enough to make themselves worth watching, even if their tale feels like one we've seen many times before.
